Changing Australia’s Solar Landscape
Currently under development by Reach Solar Energy, the proposed Yarrabee Solar Project will provide renewable energy to eastern Australia for between 40 to 50 years. Located at Yarrabee Park, Morundah approximately 23km from Narrandera, NSW, the project is planned to be built in two phases. The first phase is planned to have a capacity of 450MWac, comprised of two by 225MWac, each connected to the adjacent 330kV transmission network through a dedicated substation.
Construction is planned to extend over 24 months for the first 225MWac stage, with the second 225MWac planned for 28 months. At its peak, 450 – 600 employees will be involved in the projects onsite construction. This does not include the many hundreds of people who will be indirectly involved in factories, local businesses and local property owners housing the many additional specialist trades people required to construct this complex project.
During its 40 – 50 years of operation, 15 – 25 permanent staff will be required onsite to manage and operate the plant. Support will also come from the local community to provide other services, such as panel cleaning and vegetation management.
