Australia has the world's highest penetration of small-scale solar. Although countrywide it has reached almost 20%, some states such as Queensland and South Australia have gone over 29%. In terms of installed power, it is almost one seventh of the total capacity of the energy market in Australian east coast. And it is not dispatchable.
In the USA, the highest penetration of small-scale solar is in Hawaii and is just 14%, a value Australia had only 4 years ago. In just 4 years, Australia has changed the way power flows across the grid.
