Newcastle solar farm

Newcastle City Council has signed a contract for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of a 5MW solar photovoltaic project as part of its plan to cut its emissions by 30% by 2020.

The contract has been awarded to a joint venture between Carnegie Clean Energy subsidiary Energy Made Clean and Lendlease. The design phase will commence immediately with commissioning expected end of Q3 2018.

The solar farm will be located within the Summerhill Waste Management Centre in the Newcastle suburb of Wallsend. It will occupy a retired building and construction wastes landfill cell that has been capped with clay and turfed with grass.

It will be installed as a ground-mounted fixed-tilt system with the piling system optimised to suit the site topology and allow simple future addition of a battery storage system that could provide the council with electric fleet charging and demand response capabilities.
