Community Batteries

Ausgrid has launched its first ever customer battery

Ausgrid has launched another community battery in Bankstown.

Over the next two years Ausgrid will offer customers in identified trial areas, who either have solar power or are about to install solar power, the chance to be part of this innovative program. 

A community battery is a relatively new concept in Australia. It is a shared battery solution located in a local neighbourhood and allows customers and the wider community to share in the multiple benefits that batteries can provide. The Ausgrid Community Battery trial program aims to show how:

  • The benefits of community batteries can be shared between local customers, the wider community and electricity networks, and
  • Community batteries can help deliver cost savings and support the take up of solar power by households and businesses.
