Standalone power systems roll out in Esperance

Standalone power systems roll out in Esperance

The first tranche of hundreds of standalone power systems (SPS) to be rolled out across Western Australia is being delivered in the Esperance area, providing cleaner energy to local customers.

The State Government will deliver 1000 SPS over the next five years, with $45.8 million allocated to Horizon Power to deliver 150 SPS in the regions by 2025.

The first 50 of the 150 SPS will be rolled out by Horizon Power in the Esperance area from January 2023.

The deployment of the systems allows for the removal of 260 kilometres of overhead powerlines, improving safety and supporting the Government's drive towards a low-carbon future.

Regional communities will benefit from the SPS rollout, with the removal of ageing power infrastructure and the delivery of cleaner energy, with the systems providing on average 80 percent renewable energy.
