Meridian Energy Australia (MEA), a subsidiary of New Zealand’s largest electricity generator, has proposed the construction of a 130-megawatt wind and battery energy storage system in the Glen Innes region of New South Wales, Australia, according to Renew Economy.

The project will include two substations and transmission connections that link it to two existing transmission lines. It also will include associated infrastructure equipment storage facilities, such as access tracks, permanent monitoring masts, laydown areas and construction compounds.
Design works are currently under way to determine the number, size and location of the wind turbines for both of the wind farm sites.
