By Editor


Risen Energy, a Chinese PV module producer, has started the construction of the 121MW Yarranlea solar farm located 50km southwest of Toowoomba, Queensland state in Australia.

The Yarranlea project, which covers an area of some 250 hectares, features an installed capacity of 121MW.

Risen Energy will own and operate the solar facility. This is in addition to the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), delivery of modules and the follow-up adjustment and calibration upon completion of the solar project.

Risen Energy will complete the construction in March next year. The solar power plant will be connected to the grid under the management of the National Electricity Market and provide clean electricity to Toowoomba and Darling Downs, with an average annual power capacity projected to reach 264GWh.

Risen Energy Australia project development and investment director John Zhong, said the Yarranlea project is its first large-scale EPC project in the country. The project has received regulatory approval for the development of integrated energy storage.

Risen Energy said it is targeting other main states such as Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia in addition to Queensland. The company plans to expand in Australia over the next five years, with a capacity goal of 1GW.
