Another 100-megawatt large-scale Queensland solar project has reached financial close and will soon begin construction near Emerald, creating 200 construction jobs.
Energy Minister Mark Bailey says Fotowatio Renewable Ventures’ Lilyvale Solar Farm is one of many renewable energy projects which will soon help power Queensland.
The move means that FRV now has the much-needed credit approval to secure funding and proceed with construction of its Lilyvale solar farm, located 50km north-east of Emerald.
Construction of the Lilyvale Solar Farm is set to begin shortly, with the farm expected to be grid-connected and fully operational by late 2018.
Once operational, the solar farm will generate enough electricity to power around 45,000 Queensland homes.
