Powering ahead with new technology at Rooty Hill Station
Solgen Energy Group continues to forge ahead with projects that adapt to new opportunities within Australia’s changing energy market. The use of solar, battery storage and electric vehicle charging stations on top of the new six story commuter carpark at Rooty Hill train station brings together a solution that not only addresses the growth in electric vehicles, but also is ready to enhance value through virtual power plant technology.
The new commuter carpark is part of Transport for NSW’s ‘Transport Access Program’ (TAP), which aims to provide a better experience with public transport. The initiative delivers accessible, modern secure and integrated transport solutions.
Rooty Hill Station Carpark’s energy solution is forecast to produce 412 MWh of renewable energy each year, which will support most of the sites energy usage with the excess being stored within batteries that dispatch to lower energy costs at the site. As a direct result of the solar energy solution, Rooty Hill station will see carbon emissions from the site reduced by 337 tonnes.
