Gullen Solar Farm
The Gullen Solar Farm project is the development of a 10 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant. The project is co-located within the existing Gullen Range Wind Farm and will occupy an area of approximately 28 hectares. Locating the solar farm adjacent to the wind farm will minimise required infrastructure (such as roads, power lines and telecommunications), meaning a reduction in environmental impact and project cost.
The solar farm 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.
Construction on the solar farm began in January 2017 and is scheduled to be completed by August 2017.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like further information, or if you would like to provide feedback or lodge a complaint about the solar farm.

According to the Australian Energy Market Commision (AEMC), electricity prices are forecast to fall over the next two years as more renewable generation, such as wind and solar, comes online. Find out more about the AEMC’s report by clicking here.
Gullen Range Wind and Solar Farm were excited to recently host twenty students from Goulburn High School. During their tour of Australia’s first hybrid wind and solar farm, the students also had the opportunity to explore inside the base of one of our wind turbines and see 42,000 solar panels up close! The pupils were really engaged and asked our engineers some great questions. Check out a photo of their visit here.
