Sun Cable unveils staggering scale of world’s biggest solar and battery project | RenewEconomy

Sun Cable, the venture backed by billionaires Mike Cannon-Brookes and Andrew Forrest, has revealed the staggering scale of its proposed solar and battery project – the biggest of its type in the world – as it lodges its environmental impact statements.

The project envisages up to 20GW of large-scale solar deployment at Powell Creek, north of the township of Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory, supported by up to 42GWh of battery storage.

The Sun Cable document says the project will reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by 480 million tonnes, equivalent to the average electricity used by over 2.5 million Australian homes each year over the project lifespan.
