Haynes provides Labour Hire Support to Largest Solar Farm in New South Wales

In the heart of the New England region in New South Wales, a ground-breaking initiative is taking shape that promises to revolutionise the energy landscape of Australia.

The New England Solar project, a massive 720MW solar and battery endeavour, is not only making strides in renewable energy but also setting a benchmark for community collaboration.

At the forefront of supporting this ambitious project is Haynes Labour Hire and Recruitment, providing skilled workforce solutions.

The New England Solar Project

The New England Solar project is a testament to Australia’s commitment to transitioning towards cleaner and more sustainable energy sources.

Spanning a vast 2,000-hectare site of predominantly cleared grazing land, the solar farm is a sight to behold.

The project leverages an existing 330kV power line owned and operated by TransGrid, facilitating efficient transmission of the generated electricity into the National Electricity Market (NEM).

The project is being rolled out in stages, with Stage 1 already online, contributing 400MW of clean, renewable electricity to both New South Wales and Queensland since 2023.

Looking ahead, Stage 2, with an additional 320MW capacity, and a 200MW/2-hour battery are set to commence construction in 2024.

These expansions mark the project’s commitment to further bolstering Australia’s renewable energy capabilities.

Community Collaboration

What sets the New England Solar project apart is its emphasis on community collaboration.

The project has garnered extensive support from host landholders, First Nations, and the local Uralla community.

This inclusive approach ensures that the benefits of the solar farm extend beyond the realm of clean energy generation.

Local communities are actively engaged, and the project aims to create a positive impact on the economic and social fabric of the region.
