MPS were awarded the Horizon Power DER Onslow project in December 2018.
This PV Solar project consists of 2.83MW Group housing and Commercial Buildings.
Individual PV systems with Battery storage will be installed to the majority of the Residential and Commercial buildings throughout Onslow, to provide 2.83MW of power generation with 0.8MW/hr capacity.
All installed systems will be linked by a sophisticated solar gate control system to provide virtual power network functionality which will be monitored and controlled by the retail network operator, Horizon Power. The Distributed Energy Resource Management system (DERM) allows the network operator to regulate the flow of power for each individual battery and inverter in and out of the grid.
This is a pilot project and breaking new ground in Australia for distributed energy management which allows a significant increase in PV hosting capacity and grid stability for small power networks and micro grids.
