Status: Announced

Size: 10MW

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia has teamed up with the federal government agency, Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) to fund AU$55 million in off-grid solar installations.

The state government and ARENA will provide AU$27.5 million each for 10MW of solar, across 30 off-grid communities, of which 9MW will be distributed solar systems, and a 1MW PV facility using advanced technologies for cloud forecasting and energy storage.

The installations will cut costs of solar systems for off-grid communities and help meet rising energy costs and demand.
