Wellington Battery Energy Storage System

AMPYR proposes to develop the Wellington Battery Energy Storage System. The project consists of a battery energy storage system (BESS) with a capacity of 500 megawatts (MW) and up to 1,000 megawatt-hours (MWh), with associated infrastructure. The project will connect to the Wellington TransGrid substation via a 330-kilovolt (kV) overhead or underground transmission lines.

The project will be in close proximity to Wellington TransGrid substation and Wellington Solar Farm project. The Wellington Battery Energy Storage System would be located approximately three kilometres north-east of Wellington, in the Central West of New South Wales, within the Dubbo Regional Council local government area.
