Three large-scale solar projects in regional New South Wales will provide enough additional renewable energy to supply the equivalent of 41,500 homes.
The three projects, developed by Neoen, feature single-axis tracking technology which is more efficient in capturing the sun's energy than fixed solar PV.
The projects are:
The Parkes and Griffith solar farms are already feeding solar energy into the grid and the Dubbo Solar Hub is nearing completion.
The CEFC has committed almost a total of almost $150 million in finance towards the $230 million total cost of the three projects. The projects also received a total of around $16 million from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) as part of their Large-Scale Solar Funding Round.
