PowerNet has developed its first microgrid at Rowallan.
Coastal erosion meant that poles to this site kept on getting washed out and the line was unsustainable. The site has a lodge and a residential house consuming approximately 6000 units a year peaking at 8kW overall with potential for growth.
What's at the site?
Solar arrays generate electricity when the sun is shining. The site has two 6kW solar arrays totaling 12kW. The lithium-ion battery stores energy during the day when there is excess solar energy to use later at night when the sun has stopped shining.
