Construction Set to Begin in 2024 on a Massive 380MW Solar Farm in Australia


               A New Dawn in Renewable Energy: Acciona Energia’s 380MW Aldoga Solar Farm Set for 2024 Launch in Australia. In a groundbreaking announcement, Acciona Energia has set the stage for a renewable energy revolution with the planned commencement of its 380MW Aldoga solar farm in Australia. This monumental project is expected to kick off in the first quarter of 2024, marking a significant milestone in the country’s renewable energy journey. With a staggering investment of A$500 million (€300 million), the Aldoga solar farm is not just an energy project but a beacon of economic growth and environmental stewardship. Situated just 20km northwest of Gladstone on the scenic central Queensland coast, this solar farm is poised to become a central hub for clean energy production in the region.

               The construction phase of the Aldoga solar farm is more than just about building an energy facility; it’s a boon for local employment. Over an 18-month period, the project will generate a peak workforce of 350 jobs, offering a vital lifeline to the local community and injecting new energy into the local economy. But the true heart of this project lies in its environmental impact and its partnership with Stanwell Corporation, Queensland’s publicly owned energy giant. Under a 15-year power purchase agreement, the photovoltaic plant will play a crucial role in powering Stanwell’s ambitious green hydrogen project, Central Queensland Hydrogen (CQ-H2). This pioneering hydrogen project is set to enter commercial operations by 2028, marking a new era in clean energy production. The Aldoga solar farm is a marvel of modern engineering and environmental consciousness. Once operational, it will generate enough clean electricity to power nearly 185,000 homes, dramatically reducing the region’s carbon footprint. The project is expected to prevent around 934,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually, making it a key player in the fight against climate change. As we look forward to the commencement of the Aldoga solar farm in 2024, it represents more than just an energy project. It’s a symbol of hope, a testament to human ingenuity, and a step forward in our collective quest for a sustainable future. Stay tuned as we follow this exciting journey towards a cleaner, greener world.”
