Providence Asset Group’s Northern Central Victoria Portfolio Solar Farm Project has commenced stage 1 construction. This project consists of eleven sub-5 MW solar farms, three of which are currently under construction, with a further two about to commence. The entire portfolio is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

This sustainable project will be grid-connected, providing the local community and the wider electricity market with access to solar power. The world-leading project is developing advanced AI-based control that enables continuous and reliable solar energy supply, as well as hydrogen technology for high density, safe, efficient hydrogen storage and transportation through its CRC-P investment.

These Australian-made technologies will create huge economic value that will far exceed the investment on the project. The program aims to:

  • Improve the security of energy supply
  • Alleviate intermittency in the electricity grid
  • Support higher penetration of solar energy
  • Address energy affordability issues
  • Reduce carbon emissions, helping Australia meet its commitments under the Paris Agreement
  • Improve the economic efficiency of the country’s energy sector
