Gullen Solar Farm
Gullen Solar Farm will be a 10MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant when complete. The project will be co-located with the existing Gullen Range Wind Farm in NSW and occupies an area of approximately 60 hectares. Locating the solar farm at the wind farm site minimises required infrastructure such as roads, power lines and telecommunications, meaning a reduction in environmental impact and project cost.
The solar farm will produce approximately 22,000 megawatt hours of clean renewable energy each year, enough energy to supply approximately 3,100 NSW homes. The operating life of the solar farm will be up to 30 years.
Gullen Solar Farm is under construction and full operation is expected in mid-2017.
