Our partner, a local Australian company, Flow Power, will provide 100% GreenPower-accredited electricity linked to the Newstead solar farm when it comes on line and begins generating electricity from July 2024.

Even though construction is not due for completion until June and the the Newstead Solar Farm is not yet generating electricity for commercial sale, you can sign up as a Flow Power customer now.

If you do, and your electricity supply address is in or near Newstead, you will receive electricity via the grid that’s billed from one of Flow Power’s other renewable energy generation sites, at Karadoc near Ouyen, until such time as the Newstead Solar Farm comes online and begins to generate electricity. (Flow Power sources power from renewable energy sources – solar and wind - exclusively.)

The Flow Power website will tell you about them and about buying their electricity, but we thought you might also like to hear from RN. Our short summary explains more about Flow Power's electricity retail costing, benefits and how to make sure your account is linked to the Newstead Solar Farm.
