The Origins of Redmud Green Energy

It was with the intention of assisting our Riverland based primary producers that Redmud Green Energy first came to fruition, and has since evolved to encompass a much broader market. The concept involves the creation of supplementary income streams, designed to alleviate a land-owner’s sole reliance on primary produce by reactivating land - considered unviable for future farming - for the purposes of harvesting solar energy. This generated energy is then sold back to the National Electricity Market at a Wholesale Spot Market price, taking advantage of the volatility of the South Australian energy climate. The model has now expanded to include investment opportunities, with several options available for both land owners and investors.

With the South Australian Energy Market now experiencing one of its most volatile periods in history due to the closure of its last remaining traditional coal power station - and renewable energy developments at the forefront of government policy and community interest - Redmud Green Energy expands on existing technologies through the creation of tangible sized solar farms. These solar farms are erected solely to export generated energy back into the Electricity Grid.

This model provides land-owners who may have taken exit grants on their land to reactivate their properties to once again generate income streams. Constructed by Yates Electrical Services, using local tradespeople and professionals, also ensures that revenue generated by these solar farms remains within the community, positively affecting the local economy, creating job growth, and ultimately bringing new and innovative renewable markets to rural areas.
