The project, which includes a battery storage component, will supply almost 70 per cent of the mine’s electricity requirements, allowing GMA Garnet to reduce its carbon footprint by about 5000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.

The project will generate enough electricity to power 1700 Australian homes each year. The project’s wind turbines have already arrived in Perth and project approvals are underway, with commissioning expected early in 2019.
