West Wyalong Solar Farm

Overview

The 107 MWdc West Wyalong Solar Farm is expected to generate approximately 235,000 megawatt hours of solar power annually – or enough to power the equivalent of 33,886 Australian homes per year and provide an offset of more than 188,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year, comparable to taking over 78,306 fuel-burning cars off the road. Project actual start date was 2 June 2021 and expected to be completed by June 2022
