Summary

The proposed Wollar Solar Farm would involve the construction, operation and decommissioning of a photovoltaic (PV) solar array farm with a capacity of up to 400MW (ac) that would supply approximately 700 GWh of electricity to the national electricity grid when it is fully operational. The electricity generated will power approximately 144,726 households, and meanwhile, reduce 711,123 tonne of greenhouse emissions.

The proposal site area is approximately 800 ha with the area of PV panels and associated infrastructure likely to occupy around two thirds of this area. This would include a battery storage facility with a proposed storage capacity of 30MWH.

The development, construction and operation of the proposed solar farm will have an estimated capital investment value of up to A$ 450 million and create up to 300 jobs.

The proposed Wollar Solar Farm is developed by Wollar Solar Development Pty Ltd, an Australian developer of utility-scale solar generation.
