Sundown Solar Farm
A proposed solar project in the New England Tablelands region of NSW
Creating clean energy, value and opportunity
Creating value & opportunities through renewable energy
Sundown Solar Farm is a proposed development located approximately 30km east of Inverell in the New England Tablelands region of NSW. The project consists of a large-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) generation facility, including battery storage and associated infrastructure.
Sundown Solar Farm will play an important role in increasing competition in the energy sector and reducing the market reliance on fossil fuel generation.
The proposed project capacity is approximately 600 MW, which would generate enough energy for over 254,000 homes* and would save over a million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions every year.
*(Based on an average NSW household electricity consumption of 7.3 MWh annually.)
