MYTILINEOS Energy & Metals recently celebrated completion of the 110MW Moura Solar Farm in Queensland Australia with an inauguration ceremony attended by representatives from CS Energy, Banana Shire Council and MYTILINEOS.

Moura Solar Farm has a long-term green PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) in place with CS Energy and is the first of MYTILINEOS’ Queensland projects to commence operation, with a further two projects either in or about to commence construction across the state.

Moura Solar Farm will generate enough electricity to power approximately 44,000 Australian homes.

CS Energy has an offtake agreement for 70 per cent of the output of the solar farm, which we are onselling to our Queensland Government Procurement retail customers.

Minister for Energy, Renewables and Hydrogen Mick De Brenni said about the project, “It’s terrific to see the Moura Solar Farm generating another 82 MW (ac) of cheap, clean energy. More megawatts equals further downward pressure on power prices and greater reliability for Queenslanders, so it’s fantastic to see this project adding to our state’s SuperGrid.”

Banana Shire Mayor Nev Ferrier said the inauguration ceremony was “…more than the opening of a solar farm” and was instead “…the beginning of a new chapter in the history of the Banana Shire.

“The Moura Solar Farm showcases our commitment to large-scale renewable energy generation and positions us as pioneers in sustainable development.”

Renewable energy from the Moura Solar Farm is helping to power large Queensland Government sites such as hospitals, police stations and emergency services. CS Energy is proud to support the decarbonisation of our customers through our ability to offer renewable energy firmed with generation from our thermal generation assets.
