Wilmot, N.A. and Wyder, J.P. (1997) The WA Renewable Energy RAPS Rebate Scheme, the RAPS display and a user guide and maintenance manual for RAPS Systems. In: Solar '97: 35th ANZSES Conference, 1 - 3 December, Canberra, Australia
The State Government of Western Australia launched the Renewable Energy Remote Area Power Systems (RAPS) Rebate Scheme on September 23, 1996. Under this scheme successful applicants receive a rebate of 75% of the cost of new renewable components and 25% of the cost of new batteries up to a maximum of $8,000. This scheme has provided assistance totalling over $400,000 as of 1 August 1997.
In conjunction with this scheme the RAPS Display at Murdoch University Energy Research Institute (MUERI) provides a technical advisory service to people interested in using Renewable Energy RAPS systems.
Both of these initiatives have provided excellent help to potential renewable energy users in remote areas. Further to this a User Guide and Maintenance Manual which addresses the operation of systems and more importantly the maintenance has been developed for the Office of Energy by MUERI.
