New solar farm
THE company behind a 500MW solar farm on the Western Downs has applied for federal environmental approvals. The 500 megawatt project by Neoen Australia called the Western Downs Green Power Hub, is expected to generate up to 400 jobs during construction, and five to 10 full-time staff for day-to-day operation. Submissions on the project’s referral through the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act can be made until October 11.
