Labor promises 1,000 stand-alone solar, battery and hydrogen microgrids
Western Australia’s Labor Party has announced plans to both build and install 1,000 standalone power systems – or SAPS – including solar, battery storage and hydrogen electrolysers across its grid over the coming five years, as part of a $259 million policy package to boost green manufacturing in the state.
The new policy package, which will also put $10 million towards local wind turbine manufacturing, was announced by the McGowan government on Wednesday after it scrambled to deal with the Liberal Opposition’s refreshingly ambitious New Energy Jobs plan that includes a zero-emissions grid by 2030.
