The Darlington Point Solar Farm is being developed by leading Australian renewable energy company Edify Energy and is expected to reach financial close and commence construction shortly, with commercial operations slated for early Located near Griffith in western NSW, the Darlington Point Solar Farm will generate ,MWh of renewable energy annually, enough to power approximatelyhomes and create up to peak construction jobs for the local community.
With Delta Electricity as owner of the Vales Point Power Station, this contract serves as an example of solar working together with coal in NSW and demonstrates the growing place of renewable energy. This PPA will also position Delta Electricity well for any potential future forms of emissions compliance.
The agreement ends incoinciding with both the end of the RET period as well as the current expected operating life for Vales Point Power Station. It also places variable solar power in the hands of a party that is directly able to firm it with a physical asset. With traditional and new sources of power now working together, it is time to end the climate debate in Australia.
A focus on the economic, not just the environmental benefits, that renewable energy brings will accelerate the transition of the energy sector.
...its that easy!
This PPA is a model for how both traditional generation and renewables can work together to ensure reliable supply to customers while providing a significant contribution to state and federal government renewable energy targets.

Canstar Blue has compiled a list of solar farms in Australia, and has answered some questions you may have about large-scale solar in your state — including where the solar farms are located and how much energy they can produce. Luckily, in recent years, the number of large-scale solar generation projects has increased significantly, with dozens in the construction stages as of May Here are the five biggest solar farms in Australia, with the map below showing those that are currently operational alongside those currently in construction.
Large-scale solar is becoming a bigger part of the NSW energy mix, with 14 additional projects over 50MW set to join the ranks of the existing six in the next few years. Below is a compilation of operational solar farms in NSW that are over 50MW in size, listed in ascending order. For information on estimated finish times, visit the respective website.
These are listed in order of size. Victoria currently has five solar farms over 50MW producing power in the state. Here are those projects, listed in order of their size. With four new solar farms over 50MW under construction in the state, Victoria is set to see its large-scale solar generation more than double over the coming years.
These are the projects currently underway:.
It called the Sunshine State for a reason you know — in fact, Queensland leads the pack as far as large-scale solar power generation is concerned, with some of its biggest farms located up north, near Townsville. Queensland has 11 large-scale solar projects currently in the works, with its largest capping off at a huge 1,MW.Finley Solar Farm Update
These are the projects under construction in QLD:. Whilst South Australia may not host the same volume of solar farms as seen in other states, it should be noted that the largest operational solar farm in Australia, Bungala Solar Power Project, is in this state.
South Australia shows great potential when it comes to solar generation, with seven solar farms due to surface in this state over the coming years. These, in order of size and, again, not under 50MWare listed below. Western Australia is home to a number of small solar farms, with none currently exceeding 50MW. In the next few years, the state is expecting two large solar farms to join its ranks.
These are detailed below. According to the Clean Energy Council, only 0.
This number may seem small, but when you consider that only a small portion of our total power generation comes from renewables, it might seem more substantial. In the context of the total amount of clean energy generated, Clean Energy Council found that large-scale solar PV made up 3.Solar Insiders Podcast: Record installations, phantom sales, and the demise of the roof monkey.
