GRS has reached a new milestone in Australia with the inauguration of Edenvale Solar Park, the 204 MW photovoltaic plant built for Sojitz Corporation and ENEOS Corporation in the Queensland region. This project will contribute to the decarbonization process in the area, which is deeply committed to the implementation of renewable energy to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
Edenvale Solar Park was inaugurated at an event that was attended by a large institutional presence, headed by the regional Minister for Trade and Investment, Cameron Dick, confirming the authorities’ support for the development of green energy in Queensland.
The photovoltaic plant is located in Chinchilla, 300 kilometers from Brisbane, and has the capacity to produce around 425,000 MWh per year, enough energy to cover the electricity demand of 60,000 households. It will also prevent the emission of approximately 300,000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, equivalent to the amount generated by 83,000 vehicles.
“Edenvale is an important milestone in Gransolar’s successful track record in Australia. Once again, the synergies created between the business units that make up the group (ISE, GRS and PVH) allow us to make another valuable contribution to decarbonization in a region as committed to the preservation of the environment as Queensland,” said Jordi Vega, Gransolar’s Chief Operating Officer, who participated in the inauguration ceremony.
