Sun Brilliance plans solar farm
Western Australia (WA) is set to welcome a new, 100 MW solar PV plant near Cunderdin, east of Perth, after local solar power systems integrator Sun Brilliance was able to secure 165 hectares of land for the project. The developer had announced earlier this year that it was to begin work on a 25 MW solar plant in WA having acquired land sufficiently large enough to handle such a project.
However, the company has since been able to upsize these plans and attract “encouraging signals from investors” to confidently press forward with a larger project. Once completed, the 100 MW solar farm will be the largest in WA, surpassing the 10.6 MW installation at the De Grussa mine. Sun Brilliance also states that because the plant will be built using single-axis trackers, it will produce 20 per cent more solar electricity than Australia’s largest PV plant – the 102 MW Nyngan solar farm.
