Lakeland Solar Farm

A 33 MW solar farm is being developed at Lakeland near Cooktown in Far North Queensland.

Construction work on what was then planned to be a 26MW, $60 million solar farm was set to start by the end of 2014 with the project planned for commissioning in 2015.

The solar farm will require 100,000 solar PV panels covering 30 hectares.

In August 2016, the Australian Renewable Energy Agency announced that it would provide $17.4 million in funding for the project, to include a 1.4MW/5.3MWhr lithium battery storage and then estimated to cost $42.5 million.

Construction commenced in October 2016 and installation of the solar panels was completed in June 2017. The lithium battery storage was installed and connected to the grid in February 2018.
