CEFC committed up to AU$20 million in cornerstone debt finance for the development of the Barcaldine Solar Farm in Central Queensland. The AU$69 million 20MW AC (25MW DC) solar farm is expected to generate enough power each year to satisfy the needs of around 5,300 households. The Barcaldine Solar Farm’s location on the fringe of the National Energy Market grid will significantly reduce network losses experienced by the current transmission feed from Clermont, which is about 660 kilometres to the east. In addition, it will demonstrate how building new capacity around the grid can lead to significant saving in grid expansion and upgrade costs.

The experience developed from building a solar PV farm in a fringe-of-grid area will demonstrate the potential for solar projects to increase the reliability and quality of power at fringe-of-grid locations. This experience can also provide useful lessons for the future rollout of off-grid remote area solar PV projects, such as those serving remote communities and mining operations.

A US$25.0 million credit facility provided by NY Green Bank will allow Level Solar, a New York-based solar provider that designs and installs systems at no cost to the customer, to materially grow its customer base. By providing renewable power to homeowners through long-term power purchase agreements, Level Solar is expected to reach sufficient scale to attract financing entirely through private markets.

NYGB’s US$25.0 million financial warehouse facility – which could ultimately be upsized to US$50.0 million – provides revolving credit to Level Solar to fund residential solar installations, enabling it to reach thousands of new customers. This transaction type is replicable for other participants in the solar market in New York State – specifically smaller developers with early marketplace success but limited scale to date – providing precedent for further expanding residential renewable energy in the State.
