Normanton Solar Farm

Normanton Solar PV power station

The Scouller Energy model 5 megawatt (MW) Solar PV Power Station in Normanton, North West Queensland.

The Normanton Solar PV power station is the first stage of the portfolio of power generation infrastructure proposed to be developed by Scouller Energy project. Scouller Energy has identified a number of sites at fringe-of-grid locations throughout North West Queensland that meet Scouller Energy’s detailed feasibility criteria for development as large scale Solar PV power stations.

The Scouller Energy Solar PV power stations will reduce transmission line energy losses, reduce the regions’ carbon footprint, and facilitate additional network capacity for local business development in Regional Queensland. Scouller Energy genuinely believes that this type of project will deliver solid financial benefits to communities in remote regions of Queensland.

Normanton Solar Farm will act as a test case for network provider Ergon Energy to understand the true impact on network losses

At the Normanton Solar PV power station site, Scouller Energy intends to establish a Knowledge Sharing / data collection centre to make the power generation data available to the public via an internet portal, and include initiatives to promote the virtues of distributed renewable energy to remote regions of Australia.

Normanton Solar Farm is scheduled for completion in December 2016
