Is White Gum Valley leading the way in Disrupting Australia’s Energy System?
April 15, 2016 2 Comments
It was great to see a development in little old White Gum Valley get nationwide press this week for its leadership in distributed solar and storage.
This was in part because Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt was in town to announce the Commonwealth’s green energy fund ARENA has tipped $1 million into a micro-grid project in White Gum Valley. The $3 million project will have solar panels and batteries installed across four separate apartment developments.

For those of you wanting some more in depth background on this I highly recommend Linda Blagg’s latest video with Peter Newman and Jemma Green as an informative start. It is called ‘Distributed Solar and Storage: Disrupting Australia’s Energy System’
