Benefits :

Reliable, safe off-grid power supply for customers in remote locations.

Project overview

The more remote the location, the more critical it is to have a safe, reliable source of power. These standalone power systems will operate independently from the main electricity network and provide renewable energy via solar panels, battery storage, an inverter and a backup generator. Each system will be customised to the needs of our end-of-grid customers.

Not only are these systems cleaner and greener, they’re safer too. With no poles and wires to maintain, they reduce the risk of bushfires and minimise farming hazards.

    What's happening now

    Customer approvals

    We’ve identified all 45 preferred SPS sites across our regions, and we are now engaging with customers to get their final confirmation to install the systems.

    What's happening now

    Installations starting soon

    The first Renew the regions SPS installations will be commencing in early 2021.

    What's happening now

    Units and training underway

    CPS have started assembly of SPS units and training of linesmen from Esperance, Port Hedland and Karratha has begun.
