Community Batteries

Ausgrid has launched its first ever customer battery

Ausgrid has installed three community batteries across its network, the first of their kind on Australia’s east coast.

Ausgrid is offering customers in identified trial areas, who either have solar power or are about to install solar power, the chance to be part of this innovation initiative.

A community battery is a relatively new concept in Australia. It offers a shared battery solution in a local neighbourhood and allows customers and the wider community to access the multiple benefits that batteries can provide. The Ausgrid Community Battery trial 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.

To find out more, watch the video to see how the trial works.
