Broken Hill Solar Plant

The Broken Hill Solar Plant will be a 53 megawatt solar PV power station located approximately 5 kilometres southwest of Broken Hill. The solar plant will occupy approximately 200 hectares of land bounded by the Barrier Highway to the north and the Peterborough-Broken Hill rail line to the south.

Over 650,000 solar PV modules will be installed at the site. The modules will be installed at a fixed (non-tracking) tilt, at a 25 degree angle, and will face north.

The solar plant will be connected to the grid via a 22kV transmission line that connects into the existing Broken Hill substation, located 2.7 km to the east.

AGL will develop, own, and manage the project. First Solar will provide AGL with engineering, procurement and construction services and will maintain the plant for five years. The electricity produced by the project will be sold under a power purchase agreement to AGL Hydro Partnership.

The plant achieved full generation in October 2015 and, after final testing, is expected to be fully operational by December 2015.
