Is Western Power engaging Australian companies for the community battery program?
At the time we were seeking tender submissions for our community batteries, we didn’t received any suitable market offerings for WA manufactured batteries. The local companies considered all purchased manufactured components overseas and locally installed them. Our thirteen batteries were installed by a local company, West Australian Alternative Energy who are based in Busselton. The current batteries were the best value offering for the WA community at the time, though we’d love to have the option of WA manufactured in the near future!
