Australia is quickly becoming one of the most important markets for behind-the-meter batteries. High insolation rates and rising electricity prices have allowed residential solar to blossom  -- bringing PV to well over 1.5 million rooftops across the country.

As feed-in tariffs in Australia decline, more PV owners are finding it beneficial to self-consume their solar electricity. Consequently, a growing list of retail energy providers, battery vendors and solar installers are offering batteries to homeowners looking to cut their interactions with the grid.
