    The neoen battery at hornsdale mostly gifted by taxpayers has had no material change to prices in SA. Hence I wouldnt be believing the hype about cheaper power.
    Our prices dropped less than 1c per kwh, and they dropped FIT by way more than that, with the end result for many being no change.

    680 Ballan Road Moorabool, Victoria is the location.

    It's next to the existing power terminal station.

    300MW/450MWh capacity and it'll be a Tesla made battery solution connected to AusNet.

    South Australia's big battery slashes $40m from grid control costs in first year
    Any idea what your bill would be without it?

    Just because a utility company saves money doesn't mean the consumer is better off. I don't trust any of these companies.
    Look at the solar rebates: govt offers $1000 bucks rebate, magically all install prices go up by $1000...
    Trust no-one..
