The uptake of technologies such as air conditioners, PV, solar water heaters and energy efficiency options can both increase or decrease electricity use as well has increase or decrease demand peaks. These effects may not only change electricity costs for the households that use them, but also the costs of other households.
This report quantifies these impacts on both types of households, as well as on networks and retailers.
This report was produced for the Centre for Policy Development, with funding from the Consumer Advocacy Panel.
