Australia’s largest off-grid solar and battery storage facility has been successfully commissioned and has started providing electricity to the DeGrussa copper and gold mine in Western Australia.
The solar plant, which was located immediately adjacent to Sandfire Resources’ DeGrussa underground mine and processing plant, was currently generating 7 MW of electricity, which consortium members said on Tuesday would ramp up to 10 MW in the summer months.
