DER: A new phase in WA's energy sector
The recent launch of the Distributed Energy Resources (DER) roadmap marks an exciting new phase for energy in WA and one that we are proud to be a part of!
It heralds a dynamic new phase in WA’s energy sector and highlights the significant role that distributed energy resources, such as rooftop solar panels, batteries, electric vehicles and microgrids, have in the evolution of our network.
Watch the video to find out what DER means for WA.
Another renewable energy project we are involved in, is the Merredin solar farm. This solar farm is near completion and will be largest in WA, generating enough energy to power 42,000 WA homes.
The vast 460ha installation in Merredin has been two years in the making, and the solar farm will generate renewable energy that is exported into the grid.
To make this happen, we have constructed a new 220kV Bay-4 in the existing Merredin terminal, constructed a new 220kV transmission line and upgraded existing infrastructure.
Watch the time-lapse video of our works in the Merredin terminal for the solar farm connection.
