Roseworthy Solar Farm
An integrated solar system, battery storage and microgrid will be built at the Roseworthy Campus and is expected to deliver 42% of the campus's energy needs.
This project will test the University’s first embedded microgrid for real time decision making for demand management and improve emergency back-up facilities. It is the eighth solar project that the University has undertaken under the Campus Sustainability Plan.
