The new 180MW Warradarge wind farm north of Perth will be one of Australia’s best performing, with a capacity factor of around 50%.

Bright Energy’s Tom Frood explains why, and talks about prospects elsewhere in W.A., where his company also owns the country’s oldest wind farm and the first grid scale solar farm.

And we look at the latest network news, including PowerLink’s proposal to offer “system strength” as a service, and the latest from the Project EnergyConnect, the planned new link from South Australia to NSW which is seen as crucial to S.A.’s goal of reaching 100 per cent renewables within the next 10 years
