AGL is one of Australia's major electricity generators and own and operate Liddell Power Station and Bayswater Power Station to the south of Muswellbrook.
Each year these two Power Stations generate enough electricity to power around 3 million homes and the equivalent of around one-third of the electricity needed by the people of New South Wales.
AGL is one of the Shire’s major employers, with over 600 workers based at Liddell and Bayswater Power Stations.
AGL has announced its intention to close both the Liddell and Bayswater Power Stations and continues to actively explore renewable energy opportunities as part of the endof-cycle options for the Liddell site. AGL and Council are working closely together to maximise the myriad opportunities that will arise from a transition to renewable energy generation in the Shire in order to contribute to the further diversification of our regional and national economy.
