The project will be connected to the National Electricity Market (NEM) – the wholesale electricity market in Australia – and features two stages of development:

Stage 1 will deliver 20 MWdc of solar PV plus a minimum of 2 MWh of lithium-based battery storage. This stage will enable analysis and performance assessment of the plant in harsh desert conditions. Commercial operations are scheduled to get under way before September 2017

Stage 2 will deliver 100 MW of solar PV with a 100 MWh of battery storage and is expected to operate commercially before the end of 2017.
