Ausgrid Community Battery - North Epping
Community Submissions.

Ausgrid is proposing to reposition the community battery as shown in the image below.

This will allow the battery to be set away from the intersection and minimise construction impacts on the local community.

Ausgrid is exploring new ways to share the value from community batteries with local communities. Community batteries provide additional network capacity to support more connections, such as rooftop solar and electric vehicle charging stations.

Ausgrid is also proposing to install a pole-mounted 22kW public electric vehicle charging station co-located with the North Epping community battery. See image on the right hand side.

Key points about the EV Charging Station:

  • The EV charging station will be a power pole-mounted 22kW charger with a Type 2 socketed connector.
  • EV owners will be required to bring their own cable to charge.
  • To charge, customers can use a mobile app or QR code.
  • The EV charging station will be accessible to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days per week
  • 1 x kerbside parking space is proposed to be converted to 3P 8:00am-8:00pm ‘EV only – while charging’ for electric vehicles.

Ausgrid welcomes community feedback on the proposed EV charging station location and battery position from 8 December 2023 to 19 January 2024.
