Energy revolution at Gorae
AN energy revolution is happening in the back blocks of Gorae.
Residents Sarah and Billy Fox have a Tesla Powerwall 2 installed and operating.
They say that when the battery unit was installed recently their household was the first in south-west Victoria to have the unit, and one of only 20 installations throughout the nation.
Solar panels on their house roof charge the 15 kilowatt battery during the day and when the solar panels aren’t working during nights or cloudy days, the battery kicks in to power the house.
