The Guide to Commercial Scale Solar Development released on 18 September 2014 provides an overview of the development process for solar projects in South Australia. The Guide focuses on groundmounted solar structures photovoltaic (PV) and thermal technologies ranging from one megawatt (MW) installed capacity to large scale developments (100MW+).

The guide provides an overview of project development cycle from site selection, feasibility, project approval to construction and operation. It also sets out the processes, considerations and expected timeframes for project design, grid connection and stakeholder engagement and approvals.

The information provided is an overview of the process as every project is unique and has different requirements which may lead to different planning, connection and design consequences.
