A joint venture between Enel Green power and the Dutch Infrastructure Fund has started construction of the 137.7 megawatts Bungala Solar One plant located in Port Augusta as reported by PV-Tech.

Once completed, it will have a total of 275.4 megawatts, making it the biggest solar PV plant in Australia.

Enel will put US$157 million to the project while the total investment of US$315 million will be financed through equity and a consortium of local and international banks.

Key takeaways include:

  • A power purchase agreement has been made with Origin Energy
  • Bungala Two is expected to go operational by the end of 2017
  • The 274 megawatt project is expected to be operational by 2019 and will generate 570 gigawatt-hour/year

The power produced by the Bungala One will be delivered to Australia’s grid via the Davenport and Emeroo substations.

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.
