Large-scale solarProject Normanton Solar Farm
This is the final knowledge sharing report for the Normanton Solar Farm. The project aimed to demonstrate the benefits of providing localised solar power generation to reduce network losses in “Fringe of Grid” locations.
The Normanton regional distribution network is supplied at 22kV from the Normanton Substation. Normanton Substation is supplied by 132kV and 66kV overhead power lines from Ross Substation. There is 386 km of 132kV powerline between Ross Substation Georgetown Substation and 290km of 66kV powerline between Georgetown Substation and Normanton Substation.
