Rural Irrigation Demand Response trail

Rural Irrigation Demand Response trail

Demand Response (DR) is seen as a critical component to managing our future electrical needs. 

DR will offer TransPower and Electricity Distributor options to manage demand resulting in fewer outages and provide the opportunities to defer or avoiding new capital investment in generation and the distribution network.

It is recognised that building more is not the solution.  We can achieve the same by being smarter.

WMAC is partnering with Plains Power to provide 5MWatt into the Demand Response market for the 21/22 irrigation season.  The plan is to extend this trial to 30MWatts for the 22/23 Season.
