The Nyngan Solar Plant reaches full output

I noticed today this announcement from AGL that the Nyngan solar plant (developed by First Solar and AGL Energy) had reached its 102MW full output.

Given we marked the start of operations back in March on WattClarity® here, I thought it useful to also include this snapshot from NEM-Watch highlighting how output from Nyngan had lifted on Saturday 6th June in what appears to be 2 steps – to 75MW at the start of the day and then from 75MW to 102MW around the middle of the day:

Also annotated on the chart is a price blip seen today in South Australia, following on from the problems  being experienced at Alinta’s Northern brown-coal plant since the weekend.

  1. How is Nyngan plant going now ? I haven’t noticed any production from it in the NEM reports lately.

    • Malcolm,

      Sounds like you really need a copy of NEM-Watch ( or NEM-Review ( so you can explore your question, at your own leisure.

      There are ups, and there are downs (or is there a question behind your question about specific downs?)
