This 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, is due to begin soon.
