Project update - 17 January 2020
Two of the new technologies – Dynamic Phase Switching and Dynamic Power Compensation – were installed in the trial site in Greenvale in late 2019. Here are photos of the installations:

The third technology, a grid battery, which acts as a solar energy collector to store excess solar-generated power to use during high usage times, is planned to be installed in early February 2020.
