A 53MWdc 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 solar 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.

The solar project has now been approved, and was sold by Lightsource bp in 2022.
