"In the process. our specialist multi-disciplinary team advised on complex regulatory and novel land tenure arrangements, said Mr Rossetto.

"In planning the microgrid project, it has been estimated that the renewable energy mix will help reduce power usage costs to business by around 30 per cent off regulated bundled energy tariffs."
