Community Battery Info
The Narrabri Community Battery is leading the way. As we progress on this journey, we will share what we learn here for other communities.
First Community Meeting
Held in October, 2022 this meeting bought together like minds of Narrabri Shire. We identified the key benefits that the community sought from a battery and shared some information to help people better understand the wider landscape of the electricity grid and market.
