A 5-megawatt farm is in the works for Summerhill Waste Management Centre in Newcastle, New South Wales. The goal of the farm is to help reduce the city’s $4 million electricity costs as reported by PV Tech.

The project will contribute to Newcastle’s 30% renewable energy target for 2020.

The key details about the project are:

  • The site will need 16,000 solar panels.
  • electricity produced will power a nearby Ausgrid sub station.
  • The project will combine with the gas generator and wind turbine that are already on the site.
  • Eight companies responded to the expression of interest for the project. A tender will be issued to each of them for the design and construction of this project.
