Renewables and our energy future
There’s more growth in renewables on the horizon, with large-scale wind and solar projects currently planned within the next year. This will lead to hundreds of megawatts of new generating capacity on our network.
So what does a future with more renewable energy look like?
Let’s take a look at the alternative energy options powering our grid now and tomorrow.
Why the grid is important to your solar panels
Ever wondered how the grid and your solar panels work together? Find out how the systems work together to make the most of your solar.
Overcoming the low load challenge
Low load happens when there is more power being generated than is being used. Although a risk, we have solutions to overcome this challenge.
How your solar panels are connected to the grid
Almost 1 in 3 homes in WA have rooftop solar.
Your solar connects to the grid through your inverter which is attached to your house.
When the sun starts shining, your inverter 'wakes up' and checks the grid is ready to accept energy as you start making solar power.

Solar and the grid
From solar innovation at Amble Estate in Girrawheen, to connecting WA's solar farm to our network, we are involved in several super solar projects.
Renewables are a key part of WA's energy future.
