ORIGIN MOVES FORWARD ON 300MW SOLAR AND BATTERY PROJECT IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Origin Energy has submitted plans to build a two-stage, 300MW solar and battery storage project near Morgan in the Riverland Region of South AustraliaIn an application to the State Commission Assessment Panel last week, Origin said it was seeking consent for Stage 1 of the project, which would install up to 150MW (120MWac) of solar across around 171 hectares and 30MW battery storage of no specified duration on another approximately 2.5 hectares. This project would likely make possible to employ between 200-300 people over two years. South Australia already operates at around 57 per cent wind and solar (share of state demand), but a number of big wind and solar projects, including Morgan, Goyder South and Iberdrola’s Port Augusta renewable hub and the second and third stages of the Lincoln Gap wind farm propel the state towards the Liberal government’s net 00 per cent renewable energy target.  (ICE SYDNEY)
