The Model Standing Offer (MSO) is our contract with each solar customer.
Solar installers typically act as an agent on behalf of the customer to coordinate the information required for the MSO.
The contract registers the solar connection and confirms:
The conditions in the MSO are important for ensuring that power quality, security and reliability is maintained for everyone.
Solar systems are part of a new set of technologies called ‘distributed energy resources’ or DER. This defines any type of system that is generating electricity in a localised way.
The market operator, AEMO, manages a register of distributed energy resources known as the DER Register.
Via the MSO, networks collect detailed information on the make and model of all distributed energy resources and provide this to AEMO for inclusion in the register.
This helps AEMO and networks like us to make better decisions about how best to invest in and manage the electricity market to help customers make the most of their investments in these new technologies.
