Large-scale solar and battery install for southwest Sydney

RACV Solar has entered into an arrangement with CEP.Energy to deliver a significant solar and battery installation in NSW.

CEP.Energy has partnered with Australia’s largest privately owned shopping centre, Narellan Town Centre in southwest Sydney, to establish an embedded network and to install, own and operate a significant solar array together with battery storage.

The  2.62 MW solar installation and 10 MWh battery storage system represents RACV’s largest installation to date. The battery size is equivalent to 740 Tesla home batteries.

The system will provide a long-term benefit through a 30-year agreement that will reduce electricity costs for landlords and tenants. It will also offer market services to support the grid.

The CEO of RACV Solar, Andy McCarthy, said the sheer scale of the project and the positive benefits it will provide mark a significant milestone for RACV.

“This very large project in NSW is the perfect opportunity to continue RACV’s focus on providing solar and battery systems for both commercial and residential customers across Australia, contributing to our ongoing and increasingly significant investment in cleaner energy. We are thrilled to be working with CEP.Energy to deliver this NSW project, and will look to partner with many others in NSW over the next few years,” McCarthy said.

“The Narellan Town Centre is in a critical growth corridor of Sydney and we are so pleased the project can provide positive benefits for landlords and tenants, as well more broadly through contribution to the grid.

“We are excited about the start of the relationship with CEP.Energy and the many opportunities it presents,” he said.

The CEO of CEP.Energy, Peter Wright, said the partnership will deliver many more projects. 

"We are thrilled to be working with RACV Solar, a Tier 1 contractor and a celebrated and trusted Australian brand. We look forward to continuing our partnership for the many more solar and storage projects we will deliver across Australia over the next 12–18 months as we build a large-scale renewable energy footprint," he said.
