Last month Rodds Bay Solar Farm achieved a significant milestone by issuing the Notice To Proceed (NTP) under its connection agreement with Powerlink Queensland.

Rodds Bay is a 300MWdc project developed by Renew Estate, and will be one of Australia's largest solar projects. 

It will connect to a strong part of Queensland's 275kV transmission network south of Gladstone between Bororen and Rodds Bay.

Rodds Bay has been granted planning approval from Gladstone Regional Council, including approval to develop a 82MW / 164MWh battery on site.

The project has passed the required tests relating to system strength and generator performance standards, and signed a connection agreement with Powerlink in January.

Construction is scheduled to commence by Q3/Q4 2020, making this one of the most advanced solar developments in Queensland that can now be accelerated into construction. 

Renew Estate is a joint venture between Wirsol (part of the WIRCON Group), Energy Estate and Beast Solutions. Renew Estate successfully developed the 120MWdc Bomen Solar Farm in NSW which was acquired by Spark Infrastructure in 2019. The Bomen Solar Farm has recently completed construction and is close to commencing commercial operations.
