The New England Solar is currently being built in stages near Uralla in New South Wales (NSW). Stage 1 of the solar facility (400 MW) generated clean, renewable electricity into NSW and Queensland in 2023. Stage 2 will begin construction in 2024. 

This partnership marks the initial stage of the 200 MW  battery with potential for future expansion. The project is supported by host landholders, First Nations, and the Uralla community.

Transgrid’s Lumea will connect the grid-forming BESS to the grid, supporting a secure energy supply as the network transitions from aging coal fire power stations to new renewable generation and energy storage.
