Big solar farm for South Australia

A major solar farm will be developed east of Adelaide with the capacity to supply 40,000 homes.

Energy company Snowy Hydro and renewable energy investor Equis will develop a 100 megawatt solar facility at Tailem Bend, east of Adelaide.

The solar farm is expected to begin operating in 2018 and will include large-scale battery storage.

"This is an exciting opportunity for Snowy Hydro to source renewable generation in South Australia to complement our existing capacity," Snowy Hydro chief executive Paul Broad said.
