FRV announces Power Purchase Agreement with QLD’s Ergon Energy

May 8, 2018

FRV has announced it has signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Ergon Energy, the Queensland Government-owned electricity retailer, for 100% of the output from its proposed 100MW Lilyvale Solar Farm project.

FRV’s Managing Director, Cameron Garnsworthy, said he was pleased to be working with Ergon on this significant project.

“Using proven, efficient, single axis tracking solar PV technology, Lilyvale Solar Farm will provide Ergon Energy with a significant new source of clean energy for its customers,” he said.

The proposed Lilyvale solar farm received development approval in September 2015 and is expected to move into construction by the third quarter of 2017. Construction is likely to take 12-14 months.

FRV estimates up to 200 workers will be needed to complete Lilyvale Solar Farm’s construction. Up to five ongoing roles will be created once the project is operational.
