Overview

Powerlink has been engaged to connect X-Elio’s Blue Grass Solar Farm to the existing Chinchilla to Columboola transmission line in the Western Downs. The 200MW solar farm will be located near Chinchilla and is expected to generate energy to power around 80,000 homes. Powerlink is building a new substation at Cameby to facilitate connection of the solar farm to the transmission network.

Status

Construction works for the connection project are expected to commence in early 2021, with completion anticipated in September 2021 (weather dependent).
