Glenrowan West Solar Farm

Aug 15, 2022 | Indigo Power, Industry

The Indigo Power team recently visited the Glenrowan West Solar Farm. A single axis tracking project, located just off the Hume Freeway, between Benalla and Wangaratta, 11km south-west of the town of Glenrowan in Victoria.

The site is designed to have an installed capacity of approx. 149-megawatt peak (MWp) DC which covers 323 hectares of land. Construction of the Solar Farm commenced in February 2020 and achieved it’s first export of clean energy in December 2020 – an impressive construction timeline of only 9 months.

The Glenrowan West Solar Farm comprises of over 373,000 solar panels which generates enough electricity to power the equivalent of approximately 41,000 local homes and prevent 110,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions which assists in the international effort to tackle climate change.

There are also 600 sheep that graze the site, helping to maintain grass levels around the solar farm, and avoid the use of mechanical and chemical weed management.

It was great to see a renewable and sustainable approach to energy generation, thanks for showing us around!
