Where required you can access BUGUP for both equipment and site enablement, for upgrades to generator controllers, transfer switchgear, switchboards, automation, grid connection and protection studies.
Other possible upgrades may include noise abatement, emissions controls and investigation with your Distribution Network Service provider (DNSP) authority to approve full generator export capability.
These upgrades will not only enable your site to participate in our programs, but will also enhance the reliability of your site’s emergency backup supply.
The funding is later recovered from your associated revenues under your flexibility contract.
Enel X and the South Australian government are investing $2 million each to unlock the potential for cheaper more reliable electricity, supporting backup generator upgrades across 40 South Australian businesses.
The upgrades will be partially funded by the South Australian government’s Backup Boost grant, with no requirement to repay, accelerating sites entry into the market.
The remaining costs can be recovered from the revenue you earn under your power flexibility contract with us.
Businesses well suited to the program are those along the food chain, from growers and agribusinesses to food manufacturers and cold store warehouses, to hospitals and healthcare providers, and others.
