The Chronicle reported that the Bulli Creek Solar farm, the largest solar farm in Australia has been given the go signal by the Federal Government.

The planned solar farm site is strategic because of its proximity to the 330 kV Bulli Creek substation on the inter-connector between Queensland and New South Wales.

The Victorian Government’s Plan for Solar Aggregation

The Victorian government recently made a call for partners in a new solar pilot program. Although a trial program is always a small step, when viewed in context it’s one that provides an insight into where Victoria and other Australian states and territories will need to go in future: to continue to encourage solar panel uptake, while also properly managing the byproduct of it so an oversupply of energy isn’t fed into the grid.
