Horizon Power is transforming the traditional electricity network into a highly distributed intelligent microgrid

Our Distributed Energy Resource (DER) microgrids will deliver more affordable and sustainable electricity to communities, giving customers more choice over how they receive their energy and greater ability to lower their power bills.

Horizon Power is the only vertically integrated electricity utility in Australia with advanced meters across its entire portfolio.

With this rich dataset telling us exactly how and when our customers use electricity, we are trialling technologies to manage renewables better and bring generation costs down.

Explore the links below to find out about the pilots and trials we're running across regional WA.
