This project consists of a 200MW solar farm at Goolma Road, Wuuluman. Construction on this project commenced in December 2019. Interested parties will be able to find all the information they need about the Wellington project here.

The solar farm is situated on 316 hectares of grazed agricultural land, which has predominantly been used for sheep and cattle grazing (pictured left).

This solar farm is adjacent to our 400MWdc Wellington North project. Once operational, the combined installed capacity of both projects create a 600MWdc hub. Read our press release to find out more about our Wellington solar hub.
