A$923 million ($981.5 million) has been secured for a 150-megawatt solar power station to be installed in Moree, NSW. This will be one of the world's largest solar power installations.
The Moree Solar Farm will be built near Moree in the north of New South West state and is expected to generate more than 400 gigawatt hours of electricity a year, capable of running 45,000 homes, state and federal officials said in a statement.
The project involves constructing a power plant and transmission line that will link the plant to the electricity grid. About 650,000 solar panels will cover an area of 1,100 hectares, and will be built in stages and expanded over five years to 150 MW capacity.
