About Green Light Pty Ltd
Green Light is a wholly owned subsidiary of Elecnor Australia, itself a subsidiary of Elecnor SA, a large Spanish-owned renewable energy group operating in 56 countries around the world. Green Light is the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor, as well as being responsible for handling the ongoing operation and maintenance (O&M) for the solar farm.
Green Light Contractors Pty Ltd has been awarded with the EPC contract for the New England Solar Farm (NESF) – Stage one with UPC. The project is located within Uralla Shire Council (USC) in the Northern Tablelands region of New South Wales. NESF is located approximately 6km north-east of Uralla, 15km south of Armidale and 80km north of Tamworth. The New England Solar Farm will occupy a 3,362-hectare site.
Stage one includes a 400MWAC solar farm, 33/330kV Substation, and an operations and maintenance building (O&M Building).
The solar farm will convert energy from solar radiation into electrical energy which will then be fed into the electricity grid. Approximately 978,576 Photovoltaic modules will be mounted onto a horizontal single-axis tracking system that follows the path of the sun.
Using inverters and step-up transformers, the PCUs will convert the DC electrical energy into AC electrical energy at an optimized reticulation voltage, anticipated to be 33 kV.
