Solar power met more than half of Australia’s grid demand for the first time over the weekend. 

The share of solar (rooftop and large scale solar combined) in the National Electricity Market (NEW) reached a peak of 51.8 per cent.

Experts say it is the first time the share of solar has been above 50 per cent of NEM demand at any one time.

It stayed above that level for about 2.5 hours until just after 1pm on Sunday.
