CWP Renewables plans to build 600MW solar farm in NSW

Renewable energy company CWP Renewables is planning to build a 600MW Parkesbourne solar and storage project within Goulburn Mulwaree Council, New South Wales (NSW).

Renewable energy company CWP Renewables is planning to build a 600MW Parkesbourne solar and storage project within Goulburn Mulwaree Council, New South Wales (NSW).

As part of this initiative, CWP Renewables has prepared an outline of the project and a preliminary environmental assessment, which will be submitted to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment.

CWP development manager Matthew Flower said: “Our application comes off the back of early engagement with potential hosts, neighbouring landowners and the wider community. These discussions have shaped the project, which will continue as we work through the permitting process.”

"Located in the New England region of NSW, the construction of Sapphire wind farm is already underway."

Parkesbourne solar and storage project is proposed to be built on a 2,000ha of freehold land 15km north-west of Goulburn.

The renewables firm noted that the Parkesbourne solar farm will further strengthen its portfolio, which consists of wind and solar projects.

CWP Renewables COO Ed Mounsey said: “We are a long-term owner. We develop, finance, construct and operate our projects which is somewhat unique, but moreover ensures genuine and knowledgeable engagement from the start.

“Our aggregated and complementary portfolio is in line with the Federal Government’s direction to improve the affordability and security of the national energy market while also delivering on international climate commitments.”

Additionally, CWP Renewables obtained planning approval for adding nearly 200MW solar and storage power capacity to its 270MW Sapphire wind project located in NSW.

Located in the New England region of NSW, the construction of Sapphire wind farm is already underway.

The two projects are expected to deliver low-cost manageable renewable energy generation into the National Energy Market (NEM) and direct to end-use customers.
