Columboola Solar Farm
CS Energy's Power Purchase Agreement with the Columboola Solar Farm is the latest addition to our growing portfolio of renewable energy offtakes.
We will buy 100 per cent of the output of the 162 megawatt solar farm and onsell it to our large commercial and industrial retail customers, including Griffith University, CQUniversity and QUT.
Through this PPA CS Energy continues to diversify our portfolio and offer our retail customers renewable generation as part of their energy supply. We're also helping move Queensland closer to achieving its goal of 50 per cent renewables by 2030.
The solar farm will be constructed near Miles in Queensland’s Western Downs and will power the equivalent of 100,000 homes or approximately 6 per cent of all homes in the state.
In August 2020, UK-based project developers Luminous Energy announced financial close on the solar farm project, including the sale of the project to Hana Financial Investment and the PPA with CS Energy.
Construction of the project will commence later this year.
