The Solar Farm will involve the construction of electricity generation works across an area of approximately 118.37 hectares. The solar array is anticipated to have a 30-50 year life span.
The solar farm once operational will comprise solar PV modules, steel racking and piled supports, electrical transformers and inverters, electrical cabling, battery storage, telecommunications equipment, internal access tracks, an electrical operations room, substation, perimeter fencing, and an adequate buffer between sensitive receptors provided by setback and landscape planting.
The substation will step up the voltage to allow for connection into the grid and will comprise a secure compound with several items of electrical equipment, a control room, supporting structures, including battery storage.
Electricity generated by the solar array will be exported into the network by a connection into the Ergon substation.
