Singapore-based renewable energy developer and investor Equis Energy has approved the development, construction and operation of two solar projects located in Tailem Bend, South Australia, and Collinsville, Queensland, Australia, with a total generation capacity of 200 MW (AC). The projects will involve a capital investment of approximately AUD 400 million. The company has also secured land rights on an additional 2,000 hectares, allowing for an additional 1,000 MW (AC) of large-scale solar projects. For the 100 MW (AC) Tailem Bend solar project, the company has signed a 22-year PPA with Snowy Hydro Limited. The construction of these solar projects is expected to commence in early 2017.
