About This Project

Construction of the Parkes Solar Farm. The proposed photovoltaic (PV) solar farm would produce up to 57 megavolt-ampere (MVA) or 65 Megawatts (MW) of electricity. Key infrastructure components would include: Solar arrays - approximately 215,000 solar panels supported by approx 27,000 piles, driven or screwed into the ground in order to support the solar array s mounting system. The panels to be installed would be either: single-axis tracking panels (which would have approximately 2,850 tracker units); north-oriented fixed-tilt panels; east-west facing fixed-tilt panels; or a combination of these alternatives. Approx 28 PV boxes or PV skids (either containerised or installed on a skid platform), each of them containing an inverter and an 11 kV, 22 kV or 33 kV transformer. Onsite cabling & electrical connections between solar arrays and panel inverters. One delivery station in a container or on a skid platform. Cables and trenches. Internal access tracks Staff amenities and offices. Perimeter security fencing, approx 2.3 metres (m) high. A vegetation buffer. A 66kV overhead or underground power line to connect into the existing Parkes Transgrid substation, approximately 600 m north of the site.
