Some of the more remote areas in Western Australia, Queensland and New South Wales rely on our traditional infrastructure to power their homes. But the long stretches of powerlines servicing these properties can easily be affected by environmental factors such as wind, rain, vegetation and lightning. Advances in wind and solar power over the years have seen major improvements to off-grid power technology. It’s now cheaper and more efficient than ever. So just because you’re living in a remote location, doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice creature comforts and backup power.
