Evoenergy is partnering with the ACT Government to deliver three new neigbourhood-scale batteries to Casey, Dickson and Fadden.

These batteries will be connected to the ACT electricity network and provide insights for how this technology can provide benefits to the community and to the network.

Each battery will be connected to a substation in the selected suburbs, and households connected to that substation will benefit from increased storage capacity for solar generation, which allows the energy to be shared back later to those homes when needed.

“While neighbourhood-scale batteries are safely integrated into other networks in Australia, these will be the first installed in the ACT,” said Evoenergy General Manager Peter Billing.

“In these early stages of the project, and throughout, safety, community, and environment impacts will be our number one priority,” he said.

“We’re looking forward to working with the ACT Government and the ACT community to understand how neighbourhood-scale batteries can enable innovation in the Canberra energy network.”

This project is funded by grants from the Australian Government’s Community Batteries for Household Solar program and it is expected the batteries will be installed by March 2025.
