Case study overview

Powerledger’s technology is being deployed into Montreal Commons, a 5-story, 39-apartment complex within DevelopmentWA’s East Village at Knutsford Mixed-Use Precinct.

Powerledger and OP Properties have teamed up in a landmark renewable energy partnership that will deliver an ongoing 50% savings for apartment owners on their annual strata levies.

The Montreal Commons development will use developer-funded 75 kW solar rooftop PVs and local battery storage, topped up with 100% green energy from the grid through local electricity retailer Change Energy.

Powerledger’s technology will enable apartment owners to sell excess solar electricity they generate back to a 670 kWh on-site battery.During times of peak demand they can then buy back electricity, as required, from the on-site battery at an agreed price.

The project will be one of the first ever carbon-neutral apartment buildings in Australia and is expected to set a global benchmark for sustainable apartment design.
