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 64 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.

Gullen Solar Farm and Gullen Range Wind Farm were excited to recently host forty Year 8 students from Crookwell High School. The students were given a mini tour of both the solar farm and wind farm. They had an opportunity to get up close to a solar panel array, see inside a wind turbine and learn about solar and wind energy. With the sun shining and the wind blowing, it was a perfect day to explain to the students how co-located solar and wind plants can work very well together.
