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.
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.

There is no better way to learn about renewable energy than to take a half-day guided tour at Australia’s first co-located wind and solar farm at Gullen Range. Local Rotarians from Goulburn were treated to a private tour and a close-up look at one of the 73 turbines.
News Update 7/3/2018: Thanks to everyone who entered our colouring competition and congratulations to our three awesome winners Nathaniel, Sienna and William who will each receive a $40 Target voucher!
We welcomed the NSW Minister for Energy and Utilities, Hon. Don Harwin, on a guided tour of our co-located wind and solar farm today. To find out more, please click on the media release below. Check out a photo of the visit here.
We officially launched Australia’s first co-located wind and solar farm today. Weiwei Shi, General Manager of BJCE Australia said, “This is a historic moment for clean energy in Australia. Gullen Solar Farm is an important demonstration project -right at the forefront of renewable energy integration technology. It proves the advantages of co-locating energy infrastructure, which effectively minimises costs and environmental impacts. Together with our 73-turbine wind farm, the combined facility can power more than 70,000 average homes”. To find out more, please click on the media release below:
