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.
RayGen’s project proposes a power plant with renewable electrical capacity of 4MWAC and 50MWh storage delivered through a 3MW grid connection. It is budgeted to cost A$23.3 million and will be constructed and commissioned ready for operation in July 2021. The project will connect to the 22kV transmission line and feed into Red Cliffs Terminal Station.
The project will demonstrate two new technologies (PV Ultra & Thermo Hydro), that, combined, aim to disrupt the economics of solar-plus-storage while offering improved grid security and reliability.
The system is an Australian innovation that is designed and manufactured in Victoria. RayGen is considered a leader in technology innovation, having received a world record for solar system efficiency in 2014 in partnership with the University of New South Wales.
