The Indian energy giant Adani will build a 175 megawatt solar farm later this year after getting the development approval from the Isaac Regional Council as reported by The Australian Financial Review.
Adani is the largest solar energy producer in India producing 800 megawatts capacity. They are diversifying their energy portfolio by investing in Australia with a plan to develop 1,500 megawatts of renewable projects in the next 5 years.
The key takeaways from this project include:
- The plant will be located on 600-hectare land.
- The first stage will be completed by the end of next year with 65-megawatt capacity.
- Other stages will have a total 175 megawatt capacity.
- The project will generate 150 jobs during construction.
