Case study overview

Powerledger launched its energy trading platform in the Shire of Wongan-Ballidu to trial its technology at nine commercial sites and one site from the Shire of Moora.

In partnership with Innovations Central Midlands WA Inc, BSC Solar, Sonnen and CleanTech Energy.

The current feed-in-tariff model provides no financial compensation to commercial sites that are feeding excess solar power back into the energy grid. Powerledger’s P2P energy trading platform enables these sites to monetize their excess solar energy for the first time.

Shire of Wongan-Ballidu CEO

Stuart Taylor

"Sustainability and energy efficiency is vitally important in rural areas where communities truly understand the need to be self-sufficient. This allows us to use the grid more efficiently and reduce the cost of energy for everyone - this is a major upside to our residents."
