Capital East Solar Farm
In July 2012 Infigen was granted planning approval from Palerang Council for the development of the Capital East project - a solar photovoltaic (PV) and energy storage facility of up to 1 MW capacity. Construction commenced in April 2013, with the first stage designed to trial innovative technologies and construction techniques. The development is also a demonstration facility to support Infigen Energy’s entry into large-scale solar PV generation and integration of energy storage technologies.
Sharing the same network connection, the energy storage system will be able to be charged and discharged at the full capacity of the solar PV array. Capital East solar farm is the first solar PV and energy storage system registered as a market generator in the National Electricity Market. Read morehere.
