CHEAPER and more re­li­able power may be around the cor­ner for com­mu­ni­ties across the Parkes Fed­eral elec­torate. $20 mil­lion worth of grants for fea­si­bil­ity stud­ies into the eco­nomic vi­a­bil­ity of mi­cro­grids will be made avail­able through round one of the Re­gional and Re­mote Com­mu­ni­ties Re­li­a­bil­ity Fund.

“Mi­cro­grids are stand-alone power sys­tems that can op­er­ate in­de­pen­dently or main­tain a con­nec­tion to the grid. They are made up of dis­trib­uted en­ergy re­sources such as so­lar pho­to­voltaics and bat­ter­ies,” Mem­ber for Parkes Mark Coul­ton said.

Grants can fund com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions, elec­tric­ity dis­tri­bu­tion busi­nesses and other en­ti­ties in­ter­ested in un­der­tak­ing the fea­si­bil­ity stud­ies.

“Mov­ing grid-sup­plied re­mote cus­tomers to a mi­cro­grid sup­ply could save hun­dreds of mil­lions of dol­lars in costly net­work main­te­nance, while also im­prov­ing re­li­a­bil­ity,” he said.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close Thurs­day, Novem­ber 21.
