A 10-year deal has been announced between Australian broadband wholesaler NBN and Greek industrial group Mytilineos.
As part of this arrangement, the Australian wholesaler will source green electricity from a 120- MW solar park in Queensland which is being built by the Mytilineos group.
The power purchase agreement will come into effect in December 2025, with the aim of the internet company achieving 100% renewable use by 2025.
Currently, the solar site is being built in Gympie and will be equipped with around 255,000 panels that will be capable of producing electricity for approximately 41,000 homes.
In addition to NBN, Australia’s telecom group Telstra is also looking at purchasing half of the output taken from the solar park.
