The Mackerel Islands Tourist Resort in Western Australia coast has gone 100% renewable, with the launch of a 325 kW solar plus storage system – one of the largest off-grid examples in Australia without any fossil fuels.

The system, which was designed and built by local WA company Energy Made Clean, consists of 1,200 solar panels (325 kW) and 512 lithium ion batteries (640 kWh), and will supply 100% of the power needs of the eco-tourism resort in WA’s northwest Pilbara Coastal region, 22 km offshore from the town of Onslow.
