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.

The next Gullen Range Wind and Solar Farm tour will take place on Tuesday, 23rd January at 11.30am. The tours are a great opportunity for the community to visit Australia’s first hybrid wind and solar farm, which is located along SERREE‘s (South East Region of Renewable Energy Excellence) Renewable Energy Trail.
