Sunraysia Solar Farm
Scheduled for completion in December 2019, Sunraysia Solar Farm is a utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) farm near Balranald in southern New South Wales. The solar farm generates approximately 255MWDC of electricity, which is enough to power more than 50,000 homes. Engagement with the local community is a critical objective of Maoneng and is integral to this project. We would like to ensure that open dialogue and information transfer can occur with local residents, stakeholders and the wider community in an easy and efficient manner.
The first of many panels have been installed. More than 755,000 solar panels (255MW DC) will be mounted onto Single Axis Tracking tubes. 105,000 piles have been installed over a development footprint of up to 800 Hectares. Sunraysia is expected to generate approximately 529GWh of energy per year when commissioned; which is the equivalent to powering up to 50,000 households and offsetting approximately 430,000 tonnes of CO2.
