A SUSTAINABLE energy services company and corporate cousin to WA’s freight rail network operator may become the first business to establish at the agribusiness-focused Peel Business Park, Nambeelup.
Two weeks after LandCorp released the first 12 lots – expected to realise $7.5 million – in stage one, the largest 2.4 hectare lot is under offer.
The lot has a special “micro-grid” zoning and Farm Weekly understands the offer relates to a consortium providing an innovative, renewable microgrid energy system for the business park’s first stage.
It is understood establishing a commercial base in the business park is a condition of acceptance of the microgrid design and implementation.
The consortium consists of Enwave Energy, a subsidiary of global investment conglomerate Brookfield, Sunrise Energy Group co-founded in 2016 by four-time Olympian and former Perth Wildcats basketball team captain, chief executive and owner Andrew Vlahov and WA’s biggest electricity and gas retail supplier Synergy.
