Belectric gets planning permission for its first Aust solar plant

Belectric has received planning permission to build its first solar plant in Australia.

The German-based firm’s Australian subsidiary was this week granted approval for a 5MW solar power plant in Mildura in Victoria’s north.

"The planning permit is the first step toward implementing further solar projects in Australia," Managing Director of Belectric Australia, Nir Dekel, said.

"We thank the Mildura Council for its active cooperation and also Clean Technology Partners who have successfully engaged with the network operator for permission to connect.”

Belectric has concluded a framework agreement with Clean Technology Partners for subsequent projects.
