Powerlink has been engaged by Edify Energy to connect Daydream and Hayman Solar Farms to the existing 275kV transmission network near Collinsville. The two solar farms will generate 200MW of energy.
As part of the project, Powerlink will construct a dedicated transmission line, a new 275kV substation and additional feeder bay at our existing 275kV Strathmore Substation.
A connection and access agreement has been signed. Financial close for the solar farms was reached in August 2017. Construction is expected to commence in early 2018, with connections to both solar farms anticipated to be operational by mid 2018 (weather permitting).
