SA solar projects add to billion-dollar pipeline

Plans have been lodged for two new major solar power developments in the mid-north of South Australia as the state’s renewable energy sector continues to boom, with almost $13 billion worth of projects now in the pipeline.

The Adelaide Advertiser is reporting Energy Projects Solar is behind the $1.17 billion 500MW Robertstown Solar project, and another $650 million development at Bungama, near Port Pirie.

The State Commission Assessment Panel has released plans for the Robertstown Solar project for public consultation, and the company also expects its Bungama project designs to go on display soon.

It follows plans for a string of other local renewable energy works, including a $350 million solar development at Murray Bridge and the $450 million first stage of the Solar River Project, also near Robertstown, where work is due to start in May.
