University campus solar farm

Solar Farm

Solar farm specifications, project coordination and grid connection modelling.

Key Achievements:

Having assisted the University through its significant rooftop solar and carport solar roll out, we were engaged to assist with a large scale ground mount solar project.

  • Concept design for solar farm through to tender specifications.
  • Joined up approach between solar farm and BESS projects.
  • Boosting solar production on campus by 100% in addition to rooftop solar fleet.


  • Significant reduction in campus electricity import.
  • Reduction in greenhouse emissions footprint.
  • Joined up approach between solar farm and BESS projects.

Project Scope

  • Concept design of solar farm including layout and electrical.
  • Glint and glare assessment.
  • Technical specifications of solar farm for tender.
  • Technical evaluation of submitted tenders.
  • Coordination with BESS project separately managed.
  • Ensure technical integration of solar farm and BESS with HV network.
  • Electrical integration of entire installation.
  • Stakeholder participation among university and multiple consultants.
  • Static modelling using PSSE.

Project Details

  • 2.6MWp ground mount solar farm in camups grounds.
  • 2.2MW BESS.
  • HV network behind meter installation.
  • Existing rooftop solar.
  • <4.9MW connection grid modelling for DNSP.

Project Challenges

  • Addition of BESS.
  • Vegetation constraints.
  • Accounting for existing behind meter solar in grid modelling.
