Rimfire Group – Property Council NT Corporate Sponsor since 2018
Since starting out in 2012, Rimfire Group has been focussed solely on its target market of the Northern Territory and reducing the cost of electricity for its customers. The group is NT family owned and made up of three business lines; electricity retail, residential and commercial solar PV, and project development.
Rimfire Energy holds the group’s licence to retail electricity in the NT and is only licenced to operate here in the NT. Rimfire Energy is lucky to count among its customers a number of prominent Property Council NT members, including NT Airports, Paspalis and GRC Properties.
Rimfire Projects has this year developed two utility scale power projects representing $65 million in private investment in the Northern Territory. These projects, a 12.5 MW gas-fired power station at Hudson Creek and a 10 MW solar farm at Batchelor, are currently under construction. When commissioned next calendar year 100% of the output of both plants will be sold to Rimfire Energy for sale to existing customers to further lower their cost of electricity. Rimfire Projects has a number of further projects currently in development. These projects include stage two of the above projects as well as a number of enablers of some exciting new products and services.
Rimfire Solar is responsible for the Group’s activities in the residential and commercial solar space. Rimfire Solar’s warehouse is located at Winnellie with the group’s offices. Our solar operations include an inhouse engineering, design and install team and is able to provide ongoing maintenance services once the installation is complete. In addition to residential installations in both Darwin and Alice Springs, Rimfire Solar has completed numerous commercial installations on major buildings around the Darwin area including the NAB building, Harbour View, Paspalis Centrepoint, TCG and The Avenue.
With an ability to tailor solutions for Property Council NT members that include grid supply, solar PV and other behind the meter products, Rimfire Group is regularly able to generate significant annual savings for customers. These savings often amount to tens of thousands of dollars annually and sometimes achieving hundreds of thousands annually for larger customers.
