Repower Shoalhaven has entered into an arrangement with Flow Power to co-develop a 3MWac solar farm for the Shoalhaven.
Established in 2008, Flow Power is an electricity retailer of 100% renewable energy to the commercial, public authority and industrial sectors, with a strong focus on advising customers on energy demand management linked to market spot prices. This is a point of difference to their competitors.
Today, Flow Power supplies renewable energy to some of Australia’s most iconic organisations including, but not limited to, the Sydney Opera House, Westpac, Flinders Port, Snack Brands and the Cities of Sydney, Adelaide & Newcastle.
Statement from Flow Power: "While Flow Power is a private company, the organisation is participating in the SSF project to support Repower Shoalhaven’s ambitions to realise the community-based project and deliver on the benefits to the community, local businesses and community investors.
Flow Power has contributed significant resources in supporting the project to date and will continue to do so through construction and operation. This is driven by a corporate social responsibility undertaking to support the community outcomes driven by Repower Shoalhaven."
The project is a 3MWac solar farm located on Nowra Hill Road, off BTU Road, on land leased from Shoalhaven City Council for 30 years. Capital cost is approximately $5million.
Repower will launch a capital raising campaign with the aim of raising a maximum of $500,000 from members to partially fund the construction. Flow Power are providing the balance of the construction funding.
