Ausgrid has selected the preferred design and layout of a new $30 million substation to be constructed in Greenacre in Sydney’s south west.
Chief Operating Officer, Trevor Armstrong, said it will replace the existing zone substation in Rosedale Avenue.
“The current substation has been in service for more than 45 years, nearing the end of its working life and needs to be replaced,” Mr Armstrong said.
This development will help secure the power supply for 16,000 local homes and businesses into the future.
The new Greenacre substation will be built on Ausgrid owned land at 222-230 Hume Highway, next to the existing substation.
Construction is expected to begin in November and will take approximately 12 months.
An Environmental Assessment for the project (known as a Review of Environmental Factors or REF) has been prepared and Ausgrid is seeking further feedback from the community.
