The RayGen Power Plant Carwarp Project is a ground-breaking dispatchable renewable electricity project that will provide reliable, on-demand power to the distribution network in Victoria.
The project will be developed in Carwarp, approximately 20 minutes south of Mildura. The project is planned for deployment at a site that has existing approvals for a solar farm. The project requirements fit within the scope of those approvals.
The project will provide approximately 70 jobs to Carwarp during construction and create 4 ongoing operations jobs.
The project will save 10,000 tonnes CO2 emissions per year and provide renewable day/night electricity to approximately 1,000 homes.
The RayGen Power Plant Carwarp (RPPC) project will add 4MW of solar and 3MW / 50MWh (17 hours) storage to the West Murray grid. Construction has started on the RPPC, which will be one of the world’s largest and lowest cost next generation storage projects. The project will be ready for operation in July 2022. It will connect to the 22kV transmission line and feed into Red Cliffs Terminal Station.
The project will demonstrate two innovative technologies (PV Ultra and Thermal Hydro), that, combined, disrupt the economics of solar-plus-storage while offering improved grid security and reliability.
This project is supported by RayGen’s investors, including AGL Energy, Schlumberger, Equinor, Chevron Technology Ventures and Photon Energy Group.”
