September 10 (Solar) – Victoria's renewable energy auction will lead to the construction of 928 MW of solar and wind projects in the Australian state, ABC News reports, citing environment minister Lily D'Ambrosio.
The reverse tender, launched last year with a target of 650 MW, will help Victoria meet its renewable energy generation targets of 25% by 2020 and 40% by 2025. Its results will be formally unveiled on Tuesday.
According to the article, the winning projects include three solar farms — Cawarp near Mildura, Cohuna near Echuca and Winton near Shepparton, and three wind farms — Berrybank near Geelong, Dundonnell near Warrnambool and Mortlark South near Mortlake.
Successful projects will get a support agreement with the state that will provide them with revenue certainty.
