Batchelor Solar Farm
12th November 2020
MC Power is currently constructing a greenfield 10 MW grid connected solar power plant in the Northern Territory. The project is due for construction completion in December 2020 and will produce approximately 27.7 GWh per annum. The Batchelor Solar Farm will add generation capacity to the Darwin-Katherine network and contribute to the NT Government’s target of 50% electricity supply from renewables by 2030.
- Located in Batchelor, Northern Territory, approximately 100km south of Darwin
- Term debt finance by Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility
- Grid Connection – Power and Water Corporation
- Asset Management – BE Power Services
100% of the energy produced will be purchased by Rimfire Energy, a privately owned electricity retailer in the Northern Territory, pursuant to a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement. The provision of competitively priced generation to Rimfire will facilitate lower prices to consumers and business in the NT and support a more competitive market.
