Byford PV Solar Farms

The ERA approved an application from Western Power to provide a constrained connection to WestGen Pty Ltd’s Byford PV solar farm. The generation output from the solar farm will be runback (reduced) as required to prevent overloading in the network.

Western Power submitted an application to the ERA for an exemption from the Technical Rules in October 2014. As part of the consultation and review process, the ERA published an issues paper and invited interested parties to make submissions on Western Power’s application. Two submissions were received.

The ERA appointed Geoff Brown & Associates to provide advice on the technical aspects of the application. Western Power submitted an amended application in December 2014, taking account of concerns raised in the public submissions and technical review.
