Terregra moves forward with Moyhall Solar Farm
Terregra Renewables plans to start constructing its 5MW Moyhall Solar Farm within weeks and expand its growing pipeline of utility-scale solar projects in South Australia.
The Moyhall Solar Farm is located on unused land approximately 7km south of Naracoorte.
Terregra Renewables received planning approval for the project in August 2018 and now expects to commence site construction work in March 2019.
"The Moyhall Solar Farm is another addition to Terregra's growing pipeline of solar projects," said Graham Pearson, Director of Terregra Renewables.
This project comes after Terregra Renewables recently started construction of their 5MW Mobilong Solar Farm near Murray Bridge, South Australia.
"Terregra Renewables is committed to South Australia and focused on strategically developing high-quality solar assets that add to grid capacity while helping the local region."
The 5MW project will include approximately 16,100 PV modules and two containerized inverters. In total, Terregra Renewables will now be investing almost $16m in South Australia and will generate approximately 80 jobs during the construction of the Moyhall and Mobilong solar farms.
The Moyhall Solar Farm is expected to be completed in August 2019.
"At every step of the process we have received generous support from the South Australian government and the Naracoorte Lucindale Council. We are pleased that we can now start work and hope that our project provides a boost to the local economy."
Minister for Energy and Mining Dan van Holst Pellekaan welcomed Terregra Renewables' investment in South Australia, which further enhances the state's burgeoning renewable energy sector.
"Terregra Renewables' $7.6 million investment will increase South Australia's energy supply, stimulate the local economy and create local jobs," said Minister van Holst Pellekaan.
Terregra Renewables is owned by the listed Indonesian company PT Terregra Asia Energy Tbk. They intend to have 35MW of projects constructed throughout 2019 and in Indonesia the company will develop, build and operate more than 500MW over the next 5 years.
