Microgrid for Club House in NSW

To promote its commitment to the environment and sustainable resourcing. The Club is seeking to establish a future hybrid generation microgrid to provide electricity to the entire town on Euston pop: 765 people as part of its community mandate.

The site is a full service club providing a number of key activities for the local community:

• Resort and recreation involving bars and restaurants;

• Entertainment, function and conference centres;

• Gaming & poker machines

The Club is at the fringe of grid and pays some of the highest electricity tariffs in NSW as a large market customer mostly due to network, MLF & DLF charges. This made the club an appropriate for a microgrid hybrid.
