Carnegie Clean Energy has been successful in an application to negotiate a 10MW solar and 10MWh battery site in Western Australia.
The Western Australian Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation (JTSI), in collaboration with LandCorp, has awarded it in-principle approval to negotiate a 25ha lease within the Ancillary Industry Area of the Kemerton Strategic Industrial Area (KSIA), to build, own and operate a solar farm.
The Kemerton Solar Farm site is in the Ancillary Industry Area of the Kemerton Strategic Industrial Area, which is located approximately 17km out of Bunbury in Western Australia’s South West region.
The new project adds to Carnegie’s solar development pipeline, most recently its lease negotiation for a 100MW solar and 20MWh battery site at the Mungari Solar Farm site south-west of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.
The proposed solar farm will be up to 10MW and include up to 10MWh of battery storage.
Carnegie’s Managing Director, Dr Michael Ottaviano, said, “Carnegie has a strong track record of developing greenfield sites into shovel ready renewable projects rapidly and responsibly, most recently with its Northam Solar Farm.
“Carnegie is pleased to be able to support LandCorp’s commitment to sustainability through the integration of renewable energy into regional development at the Kemerton Strategic Industrial Area.”
