September 5, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] Australian renewable energy provider Origin Energy introduced solar-generated green power via the grid. The solar energy product will allow customers to buy electricity generated by the sun without the need for roof-mounted photovoltaic panels. Origin will buy the excess solar-generated electricity that is fed into the grid during daylight hours from its solar customers and sell this power to other customers. The company said they are the only energy company in Australia to offer customers this choice. The product offers an immediate way for proponents of solar energy who might not be able to install photovoltaic (PV) systems, a means to support the environmentally-friendly, but fledgling technology.
