Project Information

Gunnedah Solar Farm

Gunnedah Solar Farm, located near Gunnedah – west of Tamworth in regional New South Wales. The 154MW Project will accommodate a large scale solar PV system utilising single-axis tracking, ground mounted panels which will generate energy throughout the day, when it is needed most. Single-axis tracking has been selected for this project to harness the highest amount of solar irradiance as the panels will track the sun’s movement east to west each day.
