Evermore Apartments @ WGV: Shared Solar
The Evermore project is part of an innovative pilot project aimed at developing governance models to allow shared solar PV, battery and monitoring systems to be used in medium density apartments.
Balance partnered with Curtin University, LandCorp, Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), Low Carbon Living Cooperative Research Centre and Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Centre (CSIRO) to deliver Evermore WGV.
The on-site renewable energy is forecast to produce approximately 80 per cent of the apartments’ power, with residents expected to benefit from a 30 to 40 per cent saving on their ongoing electricity bills. The remainder of energy will be sourced from renewable energy sources. With so much renewable power generated on-site, residents will have the advantage of being less affected by fluctuations in energy prices. The Evermore project also provides residents with a peer2peer energy trading platform.
