Flow Power helping to power City of Adelaide with two new solar farms reaching full operation

Flow Power, the company that the City of Adelaide uses for its renewable electricity, is helping to power the organisation with two new solar farms in South Australia reaching full operation. 

The Australian electricity retailer's Streaky Bay and Coonalpyn solar farms have been connected to the South Australian grid this year but were energised last week. 

The City of Adelaide is the primary customer of both farms, having signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Flow Power in 2019, along with the PPA it signed for output from Flow Power's Clements Gap wind farm in mid-north SA.

These agreements mean that 100 per cent of the City of Adelaide's operations are powered by renewable electricity, something the City of Adelaide Lord Mayor Sandy Verschoor is proud of.

“The City of Adelaide is proud to be leading the way when it comes to renewable energy and our continued commitment to using the equivalent of 100 per cent renewable electricity to power our operations,” the Lord Mayor said.

“The commencement of operations of the Coonalpyn and Streaky Bay solar farms is an important milestone for the City of Adelaide and demonstrates Council’s commitment to being carbon neutral as well as supporting local employment and investment in renewable energy in South Australia.”
