Cabarita Community Battery

Community batteries are a shared asset that offers the local community a stronger network and better solar hosting capacity - meaning more solar can be accomodated on the local network. The battery could store locally generated energy and then make this renewable energy available when it is needed.

Ausgrid is excited to work closely with the Federal Government and local communities to deliver additional community batteries. As we ramp up renewable generation, we know we will need more energy storage throughout the system to provide secure and affordable energy for Australian businesses and households.

The Federal Government has committed funding to support up to 400 community batteries across the country. The Government has announced specific locations in the initial funding round.

Ausgrid has been awarded grants to deliver community batteries in the six eligible locations in our network, including Cabarita.

Thank you to the community for providing your feedback, we will progress with the location for the battery at Kendall Reserve.

Ausgrid invited the local Cabarita community to inform this potential project. Your feedback has helped us shape our strategy for the community battery program. 

We held an open consultation between 29 March – 28 April 2023 and welcomed feedback through the following channels:

  • Online surveys
  • Email
  • Call 1800 995 674 (Mon - Fri 09:00 to 16:30 AEST)
  • Postal Mail to Ausgrid Community Battery Project, GPO Box 4009, Sydney NSW 2001
  • Onsite community workshop at Kendall Reserve, Cabarita Rd, Cabarita on Wednesday 5 April between 4:30pm and 6pm

We will continue to keep the community informed as the project progresses.
