West Mokoan Solar Farm

West Mokoan Solar Farm

Spanning across approximately 250 hectares of land, the West Mokoan Solar Farm will be located about 8km north-east of the Benalla township.

With a proposed capacity of up to 190 megawatts, the solar farm is expected to generate enough clean energy to supply 68,000 homes with electricity. This will assist Australia in minimising carbon emissions by 400,000 tonnes per year.

The project is currently under development and is envisaged to commence construction in 2021 and be fully operational in 2022.
