Kleenheat has signed a 10-year deal with local clean energy developer WestGen to buy energy and Renewable Energy Certificates generated by its Byford Solar Farm.

The 75-hectare site is expected to be commissioned early in 2018 and will have the capacity to generate up to 30MW of electricity for the South-West Interconnected System (SWIS) positioning it as the largest of its type in WA.

The project will deliver reliable and competitively-priced electricity that is environmentally sustainable.

In addition, it will help meet the state’s renewable energy target by producing approximately 75,000 MWh of renewable energy each year, equivalent to approximately 67,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions from traditional coal-fired power generation.
