South Australia’s Big Battery
Clean energy for SA
The 50MW/ 64.5MWh expansion, currently under construction, will further showcase the complete benefits that grid-scale batteries can provide to the National Electricity Market (NEM) and Australian consumers.
In its first two years of operation, the project saved South Australia consumers over $150 million.
Battery storage allows us to store the energy and provide it to the grid whenever it’s needed.
The project is co-located with Hornsdale Wind Farm

With 12 years’ experience behind us, our technologies are tried, tested and proven. Our South Australian Big Battery has been keeping the lights on in SA since 2017, and saved consumers over $116 million in 2019 alone !
We own and operate all of the projects we build (rather than developing them to be sold) and as long-term neighbours we are committed to sharing the benefits with surrounding communities.
This dedication to community and environment has made us a renewable energy developer of choice across Australia.
