Tamworth Substation Rebuild Project

Tamworth Substation Rebuild Project involves building a new substation in Tamworth on Goonoo Goonoo Road, to replace the existing TransGrid substation that has operated for that past 53 years.

The Tamworth substation was established in 1961 and its equipment is now approaching the end of its serviceable life.

This project is a major investment into the reliability of current and future supply for the Tamworth Region.

The new substation will be built adjacent to the existing substation on Goonoo Goonoo Road and has been designed to look similar to the existing substation that is operated by TransGrid and supplies electricity to the local distributor Essential Energy.
