Energy Minister Bill Johnston today announced an exciting opportunity for Western Australian businesses to explore the development of a disconnected microgrid pilot in the Mid-West, Wheatbelt or Great Southern regions.  

Western Power is seeking registrations of interest today to understand the capability and capacity of the market to develop a disconnected microgrid, which is a small, isolated network operating independently from the rest of the grid.

A modular network of remote power systems, including stand-alone power systems and disconnected microgrids may be a more cost-effective way to supply smaller regional communities in Western Power's service area.

Western Power's pilot could provide industry development opportunities for local manufacturers and providers.
