These four words perhaps define the Renewable Newstead project.

Half on is the relationship with Powercor. This project is unreservedly “On Grid” – it is about using all those poles and wires to collaboratly share power that is generated locally and used locally.

Half off is the fact that much of this generation will take place at home on your roof and soon be stored perhaps in a battery in your garage.

Where did these words comes from? I first heard them in this ABC Science Show broadcast in which a panel describes this scenario from a number of angles. It is very well worth a listen.
