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.

Carnarvon Distributed Energy Resources (DER) trials
Our ground-breaking research trials in Carnarvon, Western Australia will help us to better understand the effects of large numbers of PV and battery systems connected to the network.
Carnarvon Energy Storage Trial - participant information
Horizon Power is conducting a cutting-edge trial into the benefits of two 1,000 kilowatt batteries at the Mungullah Power Station in Carnarvon.
Electric Vehicle Pilot
Horizon Power is running a 12-month Electric Vehicle Pilot to gain insights into user charging behaviour and the impact electric vehicles will have on Horizon Power microgrid networks.
Esperance Power Project
From 2022, the Esperance community will benefit from a new, integrated power solution
MyPower is now available to eligible Broome and Port Hedland customers.
Onslow Power Project
Power is a critical piece of infrastructure in Onslow that needs to be further developed to ensure reliable and safe supply to the local community.
Remote communities centralised solar project
The Remote Communities Centralised Solar Project will result in hundreds of kilowatts of solar being installed in large East Kimberley remote communities.
Smart Sun Pilot
We've joined forces with LandCorp to deliver solar-powered microgrid packages in Broome.
Solar Incentives Scheme
Horizon Power is partnering with remote Aboriginal communities to provide renewable energy solutions and reduce the cost of energy for remote community customers.
Standalone Power Systems (SPS)
SPS are the next generation of advanced technology specially designed for Horizon Power to provide selected rural customers with more reliable electricity without the need to be connected to the overhead electricity network.
