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.
