About the Pilot

Delivering a renewable, innovative energy future

Making a difference where it matters

Horizon Power is making significant investments in developing its renewable energy capability and expertise.

Across regional and remote Western Australia we have a range of initiatives underway, constantly exploring new and innovative ways to provide our customers with more choice and more affordable electricity.

A future led by renewables

Be a part of Onslow’s Renewable Energy Pilot as we build a future led by renewables.

Reduce your power bills and help us maximise the amount of renewable energy in Onslow by taking advantage of the generous discounts on the purchase price of a range of solar panel and battery storage systems.

A new way of thinking

Currently, there is a limit to how much renewables can be connected to the grid in any one town. A high volume of renewables, particularly in a small town, can cause issues with the power supply to the town.

This Pilot will provide Horizon Power with the opportunity to utilise new central control technology and infrastructure which manages the supply of power to the Onslow microgrid. This aims to demonstrate how high levels of renewable energy, far beyond the normal limits that might be applied, can be generated by customers, while reliability of supply is maintained.

**The potential savings and payback period mentioned are based on Horizon Power’s power consumption research, which shows that 80% of Onslow connections can reduce their electricity bills by up to 50% by purchasing an optimally-sized solar panel and battery storage system at the current standard tariffs.  Actual savings and payback period may differ depending on how you use electricity and whether tariffs change over time.
