We think smart meters will be useful for many solar owners, but those people on the NSW solar bonus scheme have a choice to keep their existing meter and have net production calculated. Our CEO and co-founder Stefan comments in this article in today's Sun Herald: http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/solar-panel-households-told-smart-meters-not-compulsory-as-bonus-scheme-ends-20160402-gnwr1k.html
Solar panel households are being warned they don't need to upgrade to an expensive smart meter to avoid bill shock when the Solar Bonus Scheme ends, despite the option being pushed by the Baird government.

    I took an interest in the Australian energy sector close to ten years ago and since then have monitored the trends, technologies and direction of the Australian Energy Market. I was drawn to the Australian solar market in 2008 and since then have worked heavily in the field. I am partnered with national and international solar energy companies, from manufacturers of solar panel and inverter technology, online software developers that introduce tools to quote, monitor and manage solar power systems and media organisations who like myself, closely monitor the solar and renewable energy sector.
