Why Renewable Newstead?
Lower your electricity bills
Our solar farm with back-up battery will keep you connected to the grid for supply security and will offer electricity at competitive rates from our appointed retailer.
Reduce your carbon footprint
Generating as much clean electricity as is consumed each year, the first stage of the two-stage solar farm will reduce Newstead’s annual CO2-equivalent emissions by about 5750 tonnes/year.
We are planning a solar farm near Newstead.
It will be able to power all premises (homes and businesses) in our area.
The Newstead solar farm will feed electricity into the grid and then to Newstead homes and businesses.
It will be billed by an experienced retailer who will partner with RN in this project.
Currently, grid energy to Newstead homes (some with solar panels) is billed by various retailers charging different tariffs.
