Juwi to build solar farm in Jabiru

It’s expected to be completed by the end of this year.

As part of global energy producer Energy Developments Limited’s (EDL’s) solar-diesel hybrid power solution for Jabiru in the Northern Territory, Brisbane-based subsidiary Juwi Renewable Energy will construct a high-penetration solar farm.

The solar farm is anticipated to meet the town’s power needs with energy taken from at least 50% renewable sources.

According to a press release, the diesel power station is slated for completion by end of 2021, whilst the solar farm and battery will be operational by early 2022.

“Hybrid power solutions offer the potential to significantly reduce the amount of fossil fuel power generation within the Kakadu National Park,” said Dave Manning, global head of hybrid at Juwi.

The project at Jabiru would be the sixth in Juwi’s portfolio.
