A 90MWdc solar farm and battery energy storage system (BESS)
The Wunghnu Solar Farm project consists of a 90 MWdc solar farm and battery energy storage system (BESS). The project is located on Reillys Pit Road, Wunghnu, in the Goulburn Valley Region of Victoria. Development approval was received from Moira Shire Council in June 2018. The solar farm is situated on 222 hectares of agricultural land, which has been predominantly used for cropping.
The solar farm will have an installed capacity of 90 MWdc, producing 188,300 MWh of clean, renewable electricity a year. That’s enough to power 27,152 homes, saving 150,640 tonnes of carbon emissions, the equivalent of taking 62,745 cars off the road.
Lightsource bp will construct and operate the project, delivering renewable energy to Australia’s grid. Developing all operations and maintenance buildings, civil works, and 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 process.
At Lightsource bp, our goal is to create solar assets communities can be proud of, so if you have an opinion or wish to provide feedback regarding the development, please don’t hesitate to let us know by calling 1300 873 575, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line Wunghnu Solar Farm.
