Microgrid for Euston Bowling & Reaction Club, Euston NSW

The client wanted to provide electricity to supply 100% of the club’s daily electricity use between 7am and 10pm, and during network supply outages. The microgrid will provide the with a lower cost, secure and renewable supply of electricity to meet their current and future needs.
