Networks' solar inconsistency reveals incompetence, or worse

Rules around solar system grid connection vary across networks without rhyme or reason. Energy ministers need to slash this red tape.

Having organised a few solar installations in the last few weeks, including one on my sister's house which is going in as I write, it has become apparent to me – again – that network companies are frustrating installations and charging fees in an absolute racket for services they're not even providing.

The network companies involved in my own experience are Citipower, Jemena, United Energy and Ausnet.
