A Melbourne developer is connecting 29 apartments & 20 homes equipped with solar panels and batteries to create a mini grid that will see them share power and cut consumption from the conventional grid by up to 70 per cent.

The body corporate will work as the electricity retailer to which and from which the networked households supply and consume power. It would also be the customer of a commercial power retailer, to secure the 30 to 40 per cent likely shortfall.
