30MW Solar Installation Set For Australia

 
Gannawara Shire, in the Australian state of Victoria, has given the green light for a new 30-megawatt (MW) solar farm, according to PV Magazine.

Located north of state capital Melbourne, ECO For LIFE, a locally based solar installer and developer, was the successful bidder.

The new solar farm will be south of the township of Kerang, on 36 hectares of land.

“Construction of the $38 million solar farm is expected to commence in mid 2013, with an expected construction timeframe of around 14 months,” said Gannawara Shire manager Roger Griffiths.

This is not ECO for LIFE’s first solar venture, as it has been active in various other solar power plants in New South Wales and Victoria.

Meanwhile, this announcement is an added bonus for Australia’s path towards solar energy. In November, we reported Australia surpassed 2,000 MW, a significant solar power milestone.
