Singapore-based Equis Energy will construct a 1,000-megawatt solar farm near Wandoan, northwest of Brisbane. The company stated that this will be Australia’s largest solar farm.

As the largest utility-scale solar plant in Australia, it will cover 1,424 hectares of land and create up to 600 jobs.

Here are the key takeaways:

  • The project will be delivered in three stages.
  • The Equis Energy project is worth $1.5 billion.
  • The Western Downs Regional Council has said it is committed to the rollout of large-scale solar projects in the region.
  • Equis Energy has already allocated $400 million to two other renewable projects in Australia: Collinsville, North Queensland and another near Tailim Bend, South Australia.
