Small scale renewable energy technology mainly includes rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) panels for electricity generation at household level. Solar feed-in tariff (FiT) is meant to encourage households to alleviate import from electricity grid especially during peak demand, via investment on on-site generation. We investigate the impact of FiT, net and gross metering types on household energy consumption, in Australia. A macro level model is developed for New South Wales (NSW) using a recent…
