Bayside Battery Project

How it works
Like household batteries and solar installation, our pole batteries will charge at lower demand periods when spare electricity is available. Then, at peak demand times it will discharge and assist powering the homes it's connected to and reduce the likelihood of outages.

By installing the batteries on our network, we will help sustain our 99.99% reliability for customers, support those with rooftop solar to get the most out of their investment, and enable customers to use these new technologies.

This is the first time in Australia that batteries have been installed as an alternative source of electricity for homes and businesses.

Pole-mounted batteries on our low voltage network will support up to 150 homes and businesses with stored energy. Two locations have been selected: Gordon Crescent, Black Rock and Telford Street, Highett.
