"Greenspot was established in 2020 as a joint venture between the owners of Borg and Bettergrow, two leading Australian owned businesses headquartered in New South Wales. We completed the acquisition of the Old Wallerawang Power Station (WPS) and buffer lands, comprising approximately 450 hectares, from EnergyAustralia in September 2020. Our vision is to repurpose the WPS site and in doing so attract a range of businesses, serving to generate economic activity and employment growth in the local community and more broadly in the NSW Central-West region. As an important component of our vision for the Greenspot 2845 Activity Hub, we have commenced the planning approvals process, seeking development consent for the construction, operation and maintenance of a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) of 500 MW capacity that would provide 1,000 MWh of energy storage."
