Solar developer ESCO Pacific has submitted plans for three projects in Queensland with a combined capacity of 320MW.
ESCO, which has a target of 1000MW of projects, has proposed a 125MW project at Susan River, along with an 85-MW solar farm on flat cattle grazing and cropping land at Isis River
By early November 2016, the Townsville City Council is set to decide on a 110-MW solar scheme in Rollingstone.
The company says it is currently holding talks with a number of offtake partners and it is working on securing grid-connection contracts for the three new parks, according to the statement.
In June, ESCO Pacific received planning consent from Townsville City Council for the development of a 135-MW solar farm on a disused mango plantation at Ross River.
Construction is set to begin early next year for the project, which would generate enough power for up to 50,000 households.
