Distributed grids often rely heavily on solar panels and require less capital investment into transmission assets.

Horizon in $7.1m Carnarvon distributed grid plan

Horizon Power will roll out a $7.1 million distributed energy pilot project in Carnarvon, while the state government has unveiled a trial to incentivise demand management by users during peak periods in Broome.

Horizon, which is a vertically integrated electricity provider in regional areas, plans to install distributed energy technology in around 90 homes and business, including internet of things metering, rooftop solar, household battery storage and inverters, in addition to weather forecast devices.

The trial will take three years and the aim is to help reduce technical barriers of distributed systems, as well as testing commercial viability.
