Located in the dry, dusty centre of Australia, Alice Springs once relied exclusively on gas power and diesel trucked in for electricity generation, but has been evolving into a solar energy powerhouse in recent years.

By May 2018, around 1859 small-scale solar power systems had been installed in Alice Springs; representing a collective capacity of more than 9,600 kilowatts. That’s a great result for a city with a population of around 25,000.

Alice Springs also boasts the cutting edge Uterne Solar Power Station. Recognised with an Engineering Excellence Award from the Institution of Engineers Australia, the 1MW solar power station is expected to generate around 2300 megawatt hours (MWh) of electricity per year on average, which is equivalent to the average yearly consumption of 270 average Alice Springs households.

Built under an agreement with the Northern Territory’s Power and Water Corp, technology used at Uterne tracks the sun’s path throughout the day, which yields an estimated 30 percent additional energy than traditional fixed solar panels.

Alice Springs was also part of the Australian Government’s Solar Cities program, which delved into how solar power, energy efficiency technologies and new ways of tackling electricity supply and pricing could contribute to a sustainable energy future. The city went from two rooftop systems at the beginning of the initiative to 700 at the end of the Solar City program in 2013.

Alice Springs is also home to the DKA Solar Centre, which generates performance data on dozens of brands and types of solar panels operating under real-world and often harsh conditions.

As in many other Australian cities, solar electricity is helping residents and businesses in Alice Springs win the battle against increasing electricity costs. Make a start on generating electricity from your own rooftop by getting a quote from pre-vetted installers in our network today.
