The Project

The Metz Solar Project (MSP or the Project) is a 115MWac, 141MWdc greenfield project located 15km east of Armidale (approximately 130km north-east of Tamworth) in NSW. The site is 430ha spread across land historically used for agricultural production. The site comprises a substation, solar panel array, and internal access tracks.


The Key Project components include:

  • photovoltaic solar modules (approximately 284,000 modules)
  • single-axis tracking module framing system mounted on steel piles
  • containerized Power Conversion Units (PCUs)
  • a substation containing transformers, associated switchgear and control and protection equipment
  • operations and maintenance buildings with associated car parking
  • road upgrade works on the site access route
  • above ground and underground cabling
  • internal all-weather access tracks
  • security system and security fencing
  • native vegetation plantings to provide visual screening
  • meteorological station(s); and
  • construction of a HV Connection to connect the Solar Farm Substation to the existing Transgrid substation located near the south western boundary of the Site.


Procurement is under way with construction planned to commence in Q1 CY2021. Construction is expected to take 10 months with the Project being operational in Q1 CY2022.
