Site construction on the 5MW Moyhall Solar Farm in South Australia will begin in March 2019.
The Moyhall Solar Farm is located on unused land approximately 7km south of Naracoorte. The 5MW project will include approximately 16,100 PV modules and two containerised inverters.
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.
In total, Terregra Renewables will now be investing almost $16 million 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.
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 Mr van Holst Pellekaan.
