Located between Burra and Morgan in South Australia, the Solar River Project is a large-scale hybrid solar & battery project that will be capable of exporting approximately 250MWs into the South Australian network. The solar farm will be nominally 230MWdc and the battery will be at least 123MW. The project will connect to the ElectraNet network via a new 275kV switchyard located outside of Robertstown.
The project has been issued a Development Approval (inclusive of the main project site, 275kV transmission line easement and new 275kV switchyard) and is now working through the final stages of a grid connection application process.
Construction is expected to commence in 2023 and is due to start supplying electricity to South Australian electricity users in 2024.
