White Rock Solar Farm
White Rock Solar Farm is a 20MW solar photovoltaic (PV) development that is being proposed adjacent to White Rock Wind Farm. The development would form a pioneering hybrid solar/wind renewable energy facility in the New England Tablelands of NSW. The shared infrastructure maximises the use of available facilities without requiring construction of additional infrastructure elsewhere. Co-location of the wind and solar projects also lowers the cost of the solar energy produced at the White Rock locality and reduces the variability in the electricity output from the combined facility.
The solar farm would generate around 46,000 megawatt hours in the first full year of operation, which is sufficient to power approximately 7,200 NSW homes annually. The operating life of the solar farm will be up to 30 years.
