Gannawarra Energy Storage System

The Gannawarra Energy Storage System is a 25MW / 50MWh Tesla Powerpack battery to be integrated with the 50MW Gannawarra Solar Farm located west of Kerang in north-west Victoria. It is to become the first integrated solar and storage project in Victoria and among the largest of its kind in the world. The project is supported by both the Victorian Government and ARENA and features a first-of-a-kind commercial services agreement with EnergyAustralia, the offtaker for the Gannawarra Solar Farm.

The Gannawarra Energy Storage System was developed by Edify Energy and is jointly owned by Edify Energy and Wirsol Energy.
