Darlington Point Solar Farm is a photovoltaic power station, located 10 km south of the town of Darlington Point in New South Wales, Australia, that was launched in 2020. It received planning approval and development consent on 7 December 2018, and has a power purchase agreement for supply of 150MW to Delta Energy. The total output will be 333MW DC or 275MW AC. It is expected to be completed in 2020 and may be the largest single solar power station in Australia at that time.[1] The project is jointly owned by Octopus Investments and Edify Energy.[2] The contract for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) is let to a consortium of Signal Energy and Canadian Solar. Canadian Solar also has the operations and maintenance services contract.[3]
