Wiluna Horticulture Site Remote Solar and Storage
Australian farmers are increasingly turning to renewable energy technologies to cut their power costs and shore up their bottom lines. Wiluna Horticultural site is located in a regional community 1,047km North East of Perth in Western Australia.
Balance was selected by key Wiluna stakeholders to supply this photovoltaic (PV) and energy storage system due to our unique capability to couple PV systems with the latest energy storage technology in remote locations. Following a severe storm, the site was left without power. The interconnection to the utility grid that powers the township of Wiluna was destroyed, prompting action for renewable energy resource. The cost of reinstating the connection to the grid was calculated to be a costly exercise and presented power reliability issues due to the isolation of the Wiluna Township.
