EnergyAustralia has today announced its $300 million Tallawarra B gas-fired power station commercially entered the National Electricity Market.    

Tallawarra B, a fast-start 320MW gas-fired power station, became commercially operational at approximately 3:30pm on 18 June 2024. It will provide New South Wales with new flexible capacity to support the entry of more renewable energy and maintain system reliability at times of peak demand.

EnergyAustralia Managing Director Mark Collette said, “We are very pleased to have Tallawarra B commercially enter the wholesale market, to provide more than 180,000 customers in New South Wales with new flexible generation capacity.

“On the coldest of winter days, New South Wales typically requires all generating assets running to ensure system reliability. With coal assets retiring, we know Tallawarra B’s role will be an important one in keeping the lights on for homes and businesses in the state over the coming years.”

Tallawarra B is the first gas-fired generator added to New South Wales in more than a decade. 

The new Tallawarra B station complements EnergyAustralia’s existing 430MW gas-fired power station Tallawarra A, with both A and B stations to be operated through an integrated control room.
