Microgrid and DERMS trial to power Western Australia town on 100% renewable energy

ABC News Australia and ABC Radio Perth recently featured results from a power generation pilot in Onslow, Australia where the community operated entirely on a solar-plus-stored-energy model. The results were achieved by combining PXiSE’s Microgrid Controller and DERMS.
