Collombatti residents are being urged to participate in an electrical battery storage system trial to assess the potential for customer-owned battery storage systems to better manage electricity network demand.
In a joint project with the University of Technology Sydney, Reposit Power and SMA Australia, Essential Energy will test battery storage systems with eligible customers in a two-year partially subsidised trial.
Essential Energy’s acting general manager asset management, Paul Brazier, said thetown of Collombatti had been selected for the trial due to the high concentration of solar customers in the area and the potential to address an emerging network constraint of demand exceeding grid capacity.
“This is an exciting opportunity for these residents to be part of the rapidly evolving energy ecosystem, while helping to explore the potential benefits of battery storage integration into electricity networks,” Paul said.
“If successful, this technology may reduce the need for future network investment and expansion and, as a result, help Essential Energy maintain downward pressure on electricity prices.”
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (AERNA) has provided $1.87 million in funding for the trial with participants eligible for an upfront subsidy of up to $5,500 towards the installation of a battery storage system.
Participants with existing solar systems can purchase either a separate eligible battery storage inverter, or an inverter that combines both solar and battery storage.
Participants will retain ownership of all batteries and inverters installed as part of the trial.
