A 51MWdc solar farm and battery energy storage system (BESS)
The Mokoan Solar Farm project consists of a 51MWdc solar farm and battery energy storage system (BESS). The project is made up of two separate sites Mokoan and the expansion site, located on Lee Road and Nelson Road, Winton, in the Hume Region of Victoria.
The Mokoan Solar Farm received development approval from Benalla Rural City Council in December 2018. The Mokoan Expansion site received development approval from the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in June 2020. The solar farm covers 94 hectares of land, which has been predominantly used for grazing.
The project will have a combined installed capacity of 51 MWdc, producing 106,703 MWh of clean, renewable electricity a year. That’s enough to power 15,386 homes, saving 85,362 tonnes of carbon emissions, the equivalent of taking 35,555 cars off the road.
Lightsource bp will construct and operate the project, delivering renewable energy to Australia’s grid. The project will also include operations and maintenance buildings, civil works, and the electrical infrastructure required to connect to the existing electricity network. Construction is set to begin late 2022; the project will provide up to 170 full-time construction roles throughout the construction process.
