The University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Australian announced that it had entered into a “tripartite arrangement” with Maoneng Australia and Origin Energy for an offsite solar PV corporate power purchase agreement.

Construction on the facility is set to commence later this year, with solar energy production expected in the second quarter of 2019.

While the farm is built, Origin Energy will provide UNSW with electricity.

“This landmark initiative is an exciting step towards realizing UNSW’s goal of carbon neutrality on energy use by 2020 and reflects our commitment to making a positive global impact,” Ian Jacobs, UNSW’s president and vice chancellor, said in a statement.
