Terregra to Construct 5MW Solar Farm in SA
The local government's battery subsidy is in full-swing. The Bungala solar farm has begun to feed into the grid. The Hornsdale Power Reserve's blitzing it. South Australia is proceeding from strength to strength as Terregra announces it will begin construction on an $8.5 million 500MW PV plant in Mobilong. They intend to have 35MW of projects operational in 2019, at the very least, with many more “shovel-ready.”
The Indonesian based company, whose name sounds like a sexy car model or a Zoolander pose, has a strong commitment to community. “Now that we're moving into the construction phase, our focus turns to engaging local businesses and employing tradespeople from the surrounding region wherever possible,” their company director Graham Pearson has said. They will employ 40 workers to install 16,100 panels plus 2 inverters.
The installation is to go on unused farm land near, but North of, Murray Bridge on Mannum Road — bang along the Mobilong-Murray Bridge South sub-transmission line. Residents and Council alike have been taken into due consideration.
“We consulted with the nearby landowners and specifically amended the site layout to address the feedback that we received. . .We have been overwhelmed by the support from the Rural City of Murray Bridge council and are pleased that we can now start work,” Mr. Pearson further stated.
The aim is to have the project completed April 2019.
