Info box: Beryl Solar Farm to help power Sydney Metro Northwest
In July 2018, the NSW Government signed an agreement with the Beryl Solar Farm to offset operations from the Sydney Metro Northwest rail project.
The 87 megawatt solar farm includes about 260,000 solar modules on a 145 hectare site outside Gulgong and is expected to create about 150 jobs during construction as well as ongoing employment when operational.
Part of the projects output will be used to offset the cost of the approximately 134,000 megawatt hours of electricity the new Sydney Metro Northwest railway is expected to consume each year.
This is one of the first transactions of this kind between an Australian public infrastructure project and a renewable energy generator.
