Powerlink is undertaking works to connect CSF Pty Ltd's Columboola Solar Farm to the transmission network. The 162MW solar farm is being built between Chinchilla and Miles, and is expected to power the equivalent of 100,000 homes.
Powerlink’s connection project involves works at the existing Columboola Substation and construction of almost two kilometres of transmission line.
Construction works for the connection project commenced in October 2020 and were completed in late 2021. Final testing and commissioning activities will occur during 2022.
