Across all 4 major regions
BESS Installed and commissioned by Dec 2021. Customer ready by early 2022
To safeguard the reliable supply of electricity to each community, we need to limit how much rooftop solar the electricity system can accommodate; this limit is called hosting capacity. By installing Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) in nine regional networks, we will increase hosting capacity so more people can install, connect and benefit from rooftop solar.
By December 2021, we will have boosted the hosting capacity of Yungngora, Broome, Marble Bar, Gascoyne Junction, Carnarvon, Exmouth, Yalgoo, Wiluna, and Menzies, giving you the opportunity to invest in rooftop solar, or upgrade your current system.
We’ve awarded Hybrid Systems Australia the contract to supply and install Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) in Carnarvon, Marble Bar, Wiluna, Yalgoo and Yungngora.
The systems will be deployed across 2021 and will allow customers to install rooftop solar systems on their homes once commissioned.
We’re driven to make solar power an option in towns with accessibility and reliability challenges.
That’s why we’re working hard to secure the final four agreements for BESS in Broome, Exmouth, Gascoyne Junction and Menzies, so watch this space for updates!
