Renewable energy generation
The ground-mounted solar farm is expected to have a capacity of 4.56 MW. This is forcast to supply sufficient electricity for the equivalent of around 1,100 typical homes, around three-quarters of the total in the three nearby communities. It is expected to generate around 4414 MWh of electricity each year. The panels are estimated to save around 2372 tonnes of CO2 a year over the 25-year lifetime of the project.
