Applications made to the government of New South Wales in Australia for two solar farms totalling 285MW of capacity are open to comment from stakeholders and members of the public.
Tarleigh Park Solar Farm would be a 90MW utility-scale solar PV park, the development of which is currently being investigated by UK-headquartered developer RES (Renewable Energy Systems), in Blighty, a small development 23km southeast of the nearest ‘big’ town, Delinquin (population: around 8,000).
About 2km away would be Currawarra Solar Farm, a 195MW facility, for which RES has also made an application. In both instances, RES said it has performed “a comprehensive suite of environmental surveys” and the viability of both projects is being assessed through “extensive community consultation”. Both projects' proposals include battery energy storage.
