AC Energy and UPC Renewables joint venture AC Renewables Australia recently announced that it has signed the connection agreement with Transgrid for the connection arrangements for the 720 MW AC New England Solar Farm to TransGrid’s 330kV transmission line from Tamworth to Armidale in Northeast NSW, and the delivery of connection services over the life of the project. The development approval from the NSW Independent Planning Commission was obtained earlier this year which has allowed the commencement of early works for construction.

The New England solar farm near Uralla in New South Wales, once fully constructed, will produce enough renewable energy to power around 250,000 homes each year. It is expected that construction will take around three years with generation being brought on line in stages.

AC Renewables is also planning to install a large scale lithium-ion battery storage facility, which will assist with electricity grid stability and provide firm capability to deliver energy at peak periods, lowering prices for consumers.
