South Australia is set to get another “big battery”, this time a 21MW/26MWh storage system next to a new 44MW solar farm to be constructed by Tilt Renewables.

The project, which will be situated next to the Snowtown 1 wind farm in the state’s mid-north, was announced by the Labor state government, hot on the heels of its announcement of the world’s biggest virtual power plant, also to be built by Tesla.

The battery project marks the fourth confirmed battery storage installation in the state, following the already complete Tesla big battery next to the Hornsdale wind farm, the 10MW/10MWh battery to be built next to the Lincoln Gap wind farm, and the 30MW/8MWh battery being installed next to the Wattle Point wind farm.

It also adds to the pipeline of confirmed solar farms, alongside the 220MW Bungala solar farm under construction, the 100MW Tailem Bend project, big plans by DP Energy and the Whyalla Steelworks, and several smaller projects. Read the full article →
