What do Sydney’s grid constraints mean for new developments?

Did you know that parts of Sydney’s CBD grid network are over 50 years old? This means that they are facing the end of their serviceable life. But what could this mean for Australia’s largest city?

Network cables that are nearing retirement may be able to supply electricity to current developments. But what about all of the new building that’s happening? The fact is, there is no capacity left to guarantee power to new builds.

Optimal have a proven solution to this issue. The installation of a Capstone microturbine generates ultra-low emission power that seamlessly integrates with the grid. This deeply lessens the load on the power grid, so that customers and infrastructure owners can have power peace of mind.

In addition to this, Capstone microturbines can provide massive benefits in terms of heating and cooling. The installation of heat recovery units mean that any waste heat generated by the turbines, will be delivered into free heating and cooling for consumers. Not only does this slash energy prices but it also significantly reduces carbon emissions.

Here at Optimal, we want to ensure that no one is left in the dark due to grid constraints. If you would like to learn more about our energy solutions, you can contact us on 1300 678 476 or sales@optimalgroup.com.au.
