In August 2020 Luminous Energy announced it had secured a Power Purchase Agreement with CS Energy, a Queensland Government-owned energy business. The ten-year PPA with CS Energy is for 100% of the site’s output – 450GWh each year – and is one of Australia’s most substantial renewable energy contracts ever

Concurrently it announced the completion of the sale of 100% shares of the 203MWdc (162MWac) solar farm to Hana Financial Investment (Samchully Asset Management as the fund manager), a leading Korean investor. The project was developed with PwC and will support Queensland’s target of 50% renewable energy generation by 2030.

The solar farm will be constructed near Miles in Queensland’s Western Downs and will power the equivalent of 100,000 homes or approximately 6% of all homes in the state. The project will supply clean and affordable energy to Queenslanders, including a group of universities – Griffith University, Central Queensland University and Queensland University of Technology – that are all CS Energy customers.

Luminous Energy carefully designed the 1,000-acre Columboola site to have a minimal impact on the surrounding environment, respecting the Indigenous cultural heritage of the site and natural features of the landscape, such as water courses and remnant vegetation.

The project demonstrates how the latest solar technology innovations – such as high power bifacial panels and single axis trackers that follow the sun – can significantly increase energy generation when compared to traditional designs. The optimisation of energy generation through these technologies, coupled with the strategic location of the site with an excellent solar resource and resilient grid connection, enabled the project to achieve a low levelised cost of energy (LCOE) and secure a sought after PPA.

The project will create up to 400 new green jobs, supporting a recent call to generate one million clean energy jobs in Australia as part of the green recovery from COVID-19.6 Construction of the site will begin in August and will be carried out by contractor Sterling and Wilson in a $240 million deal. It is due to be completed by the end of next year.
