Embedded Solar Generation
Location: Multiple, WA
Output: 1 MW
Annual Production: 1,700 MWh per annum
AER installed, owns and operates a number of embedded PV systems in Perth’s metro area which generate and provide solar electricity to a number of electricity users. Located primarily on commercial office buildings and other commercial and industrial facilities, the systems range in size from 30 – 100kW each.
The systems generate electricity for supply within the premises on which they are located. Any excess electricity is then exported to the electricity network where AER uses it to supply renewable energy to its other customers. Any shortfall of electricity which results from the site’s load being greater than the solar system’s output is sourced from the Western Power network through a typical electricity retail contract with AER.
