The Project

Green Light Contractors Pty Ltd has been awarded with the EPC contract for the New England Solar Farm (NESF) – Stage one with UPC. The project is located within Uralla Shire Council (USC) in the Northern Tablelands region of New South Wales. NESF is located approximately 6km north-east of Uralla, 15km south of Armidale and 80km north of Tamworth. The New England Solar Farm will occupy a 3,362-hectare site.

Stage one includes a 400MWAC solar farm, 33/330kV Substation, and an operations and maintenance building (O&M Building).

The solar farm will convert energy from solar radiation into electrical energy which will then be fed into the electricity grid. Approximately 978,576 Photovoltaic modules will be mounted onto a horizontal single-axis tracking system that follows the path of the sun.

Using inverters and step-up transformers, the PCUs will convert the DC electrical energy into AC electrical energy at an optimized reticulation voltage, anticipated to be 33 kV.
