In 2016, the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) announced it was putting around $100 million on the table to find the best large scale solar projects in Australia. It expected to fund four to ten, generating 200 megawatts of electricity. But, by the end of the process, ARENA announced it was getting more bang for its buck than it ever could have imagined: 12 solar farms across the country, from Emu Downs in WA to Kidston in Queensland, with a combined capacity of 490 megawatts.
