GE Energy Storage Included in Aussie Solar River Project (Int'l.)
Solar River Project, GE Renewable Energy
Date: 2019-09-23
In the Land Down Under, the Solar River Project and GE Renewable Energy are reporting GE has been selected for the supply and integration of one of the largest grid-scale battery technology hybrid deployment to be installed for the Solar River Project in South Australia. The energy storage system will be coupled to a large 200 MW photovoltaic generation plant.

Solar River Project will incorporate more than 640,000 solar panels and GE's 100-MW, 3 hours battery storage system -- sufficient electric power to 90,000 South Australian homes. The project is expected to come on line in early 2021.

Date: 2019-02-08
In the Land Down Under, South Australia, the nation's renewable energy leader, reports it may soon host two of the country's largest utility-scale solar arrays -- a 500 MW solar farm co-located with a 250 MW/1 GWh battery storage capacity, and a construction-ready 200 MW PV project with 120 MWh of storage that forms part of the Solar River Project, near Robertstown.

The first project, proposed by Energy Projects Solar, would be constructed in stages and get under way before the year end. The second scheme planned for the same region is the Solar River Project is presently preparing to break ground.

The privately funded, $450 million Solar River Project comprises 200 MW of solar PV generation capacity plus 120 MWh of battery storage capacity. The two projects with their energy storage facilities are among the largest in Australia's development pipeline.
