A Big Solar Farm for our big Country

The ACT Government recently announced plans for a 20 megawatt solar power station to be built at Royalla, making it Australia’s largest.

Chief Executive of the Australian Solar Council, John Grimes said the announcement is just a taste of what is to come in the future.

“Our clean energy future has arrived and there is more to come. This is a landmark day for Big Solar in Australia,” he said.

“Household solar is already reducing demand for power from the National Energy Market and is forever decreasing in price.”

The ACT solar power station will deliver energy with zero pollution at just 18.6 cents per kilowatt hour to 4,500 homes via 83,000 photovoltaic panels.

Spanish-based company, Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV) have won the auction to build the impressive solar station with construction due to begin next year.

Martin Ferguson, Federal Minister for Resources and Energy, believes large-scale solar plants will increasingly be used to meet Australia’s energy needs.

“This announcement by the ACT Government is a window into our solar future and one which will take shape over the next decade,” he said.
