This 214MWp project in Lower Wonga, Queensland began construction in June 2021, and interested parties will be able to find all the information they need about the Woolooga project here.

The solar farm development approval consists of three sites (i.e. Woolooga 1 and Woolooga 2 Site B, collectively known as ‘Woolooga North’ and Woolooga 2 Site A, known as ‘Woolooga South’)  forming one project which will have an export capacity of  176MW AC. The whole of the solar farm covers approximately 500 hectares of land, which has predominantly been used for grazing.
