New South Wales State-owned electricity distributor is disposing of its renewable energy generating plants.

Ausgrid’s 600 kilowattwind turbine at Kooragang Island in Newcastle is being removed to make way for a coal loader. It was installed in 1997 and was originally planned as the first of several turbines to be installed along the Hunter River.

A 400 kilowatt solar farm at Singleton – the largest solar plant in the Southern Hemisphere when it was installed in 1998 – and a 70 kilowatt photovoltaic array on the roof of the Allphones Arena at Sydney Olympic Park are also for sale.
