Moree Solar Farm was built by Fotowatio Renewable Ventures, FRV, one of the world's leading experts in photovoltaic and thermosolar energy, and was commissioned earlier this year.
FRV Chief Executive Officer Rafael Benjumea said, “This transaction represents a key step in achieving FRV’s strategy to develop and build renewable power generation assets across Australia and globally.
“The agreement is yet another Australian market first for FRV and demonstrates that stability is starting to return to the Australian renewable energy market,” said Mr Benjumea.
The Moree PPA is Origin’s first ever Australian solar PPA and complements Origin’s nine existing offtake agreements with wind farms in south-eastern Australia, growing its renewable portfolio.
Origin continues to look for more sites like Moree, to pursue developments in utility scale solar and was recently shortlisted for funding by ARENA for a development approved site in Darling Downs, Queensland.
