Developer Ingenero Pty. Ltd. will install a 235 kW power station using SolFocus solar arrays to provide solar power at Alice Springs Airport in the Northern Territory of Australia.
The Alice Springs Airport power station will deliver approximately 600 MWh of electricity directly to the airport's internal electricity grid. The airport will be powered by 28 SolFocus 1100S concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) arrays.
Under the Australian government's $94 million Solar Cities program, the project will receive $1.132 million from the Australian government – approximately half of the total project cost. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of the third quarter of this year.
