Gullen Solar Farm

The Gullen Solar Farm project is the development of a 10 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant. The solar farm is co-located within the existing Gullen Range Wind Farm and occupies an area of approximately 28 hectares. Locating the solar farm adjacent to the wind farm minimises required infrastructure (such as roads, power lines and telecommunications), meaning a reduction in environmental impact and project cost.

The solar farm consists of 42,000 solar panels and first generated electricity in 2017. It will produce approximately 22,000 megawatt-hours of clean renewable energy each year, which is enough energy to supply approximately 3,100 NSW homes. The operating life of the solar farm will be 25 – 30 years.
