Grid demand hits record low as rooftop PV takes bigger bite out of coal power’s lunch | RenewEconomy

Across the National Electricity Market, which includes all states except for Western Australia, the share of renewables peaked at above 60 per cent (60.3 per cent) at 11.15am on Sunday which was not far off the record for the country’s main grid.

But things were also sunny in Western Australia, where the share of distributed solar PV, mostly on rooftops, hit what appears to be a record of 72 per cent on Sunday, a day after setting an earlier peak of 71 per cent on Saturday. The previous record was 69 per cent almost exactly a year ago.
