Lakeland Solar & Storage Switches On
Australia’s first grid-connected, utility-scale solar and battery facility is now feeding electricity into the grid, providing certainty of power supply for Far North Queenslanders.
Daly River: Harnessing the sun for energy independence
Energy independence through solar efficiency is a step closer for the people of Daly River, about 220 kilometres south-west of Darwin.
Australia’s first grid-connected, utility-scale solar and battery facility located in Queensland’s Cape York Peninsula is now feeding electricity into the grid, providing certainty of power supply for Far North Queenslanders. The region is abundant in solar resource, so it’s an ideal place to deliver a high performance solar and storage project.
The facility consists of a 13MWp/10.8MWac solar power PV ground-mounted array (featuring 41,440 solar panels), with a 1.4MW/5.3MWh battery storage solution and smart controller that combined, will create a consistent power supply, even during times of cloud cover. Having locally-based energy generation in these more remote areas reduces power losses caused by lengthy transmission distances from power stations outside the region.
Lakeland Solar & Storage Project, was made possible through $17.4M funding support from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA). An important part of the development is the continuing Knowledge Sharing Program with participants ARENA, AEMO, BHP, Ergon Energy and Origin Energy testing a full range of battery storage capability including islanding, FCAS, market mode, PV and grid support mode and other combinations.
Conergy is a specialist in the planning and development of large-scale solar energy projects, including site selection, engineering design, construction, commissioning through to operation and maintenance.
Conergy is actively looking for Landowners with suitable rural and remote properties available for lease, offering significant financial returns on a long-term investment opportunity.
Ground mounted utility solar farms have a minimal footprint and are demounted and removed when the life-cycle of the facility is complete. Brown field sites, lower grade agricultural land and under utilised parcels of more than 40 hectares are ideal for development.
