Wellington North solar

This solar project consists of a 425MWdc solar farm approximately seven kilometres north-east of Wellington, off Goolma Road, and 50 kilometres south-east of Dubbo in the Orana region of NSW. The project has been approved by the NSW Department Planning, Industry and Environment with construction, which will create 400 jobs, currently underway.

The solar farm is adjacent to our 200MWdc Wellington solar farm which is currently in construction. Once operational, both sites will create a solar hub with a combined installed capacity of 625MWdc. Read our press release to find out more about our Wellington solar hub.
