West Wyalong Solar Farm – Project Details

Our West Wyalong solar farm is a 107MWdc project located at 228-230 Blands Lane, Wyalong, NSW 2671. We have successfully secured a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Snowy Hydro as well as a contract with an EPC company and are now working to bring the project to financial close.

Snowy Hydro will purchase two-thirds of the power generated from the solar project through a 15-year PPA. Under this arrangement Snowy-Hydro will in turn supply 23,000MWh of renewable energy annually to bp – meeting the power requirements of all its 88 service stations throughout the state of New South Wales. 

Construction on the site, which covers approximately 280 hectares of land, is due to start in the first half of 2021. New South Wales residents can expect bp service stations to be powered by 100% renewable energy by January 2023.
