Global energy and infrastructure business Acciona Energy has been appointed to develop the $500 million Aldoga solar project on 1,250-hectares of under-utilised state-owned land.
The business has signed a 30-year Agreement for Lease with the Queensland Government to transform for the project.
Acciona is ready for the feasibility study to take place while working towards achieving the necessary development approvals for the project.
At peak capacity, the projected 265 mW output should deliver enough energy to supply approximately 122,000 households.
The Aldoga solar plans will connect to the grid via Powerlink’s Larcom Creek substation.
Under the Buy Queensland and Gladstone Local Buy procurement policies, local sub-contractors and manufacturers from the area will be looked at preferentially.
