At Horizon Power, we need your help to increase the amount of renewable energy on our networks.
Horizon Power is undertaking a ground-breaking research trial in Carnarvon, Western Australia. The main purpose of the trial is to understand how cloud movements impact on solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity generation, and how this impacts on the network.
Watch the short video below to learn more about how cloud movements impact our network.
Carnarvon has been selected as the location for this cutting-edge trial as the community has a long history of embracing innovation, including the first privately owned solar farm in Australia. Carnarvon also has record uptake of solar energy across homes and businesses.
The trial is expected to run for approximately 3 years.
Horizon Power will also be installing a 3D sky camera in Carnarvon in order to track cloud movements and weather patterns. Your data will be time-stamped and matched with sky-camera data, so that Horizon Power can understand the impact of cloud events and weather patterns on solar PV electricity generation and the network.
To understand how cloud movements impact on solar PV electricity generation and the network, Horizon Power wants to get a better idea of:
How will it work?

|By participating in this trial, and helping to create a large and diverse data set, you will be making a significant contribution to the advancement of distributed energy resources, such as solar PV and home batteries. This will ultimately lead to a more sustainable future for everyone.
Participation in the trial is free and we will pay for you to access the Solar Analytics dashboard.
Once the Solar Smart Monitor has been installed, you don’t need to do anything for the duration of the trial. All costs associated with installation of the Solar Smart Monitor will be covered by Horizon Power.
