Gannawarra Solar Farm | 60 MW
The Gannawarra Solar Farm is a 60 MW DC single-axis tracking project located in Victoria. It is the first large-scale solar farm to be constructed with an integrated Energy Storage System – a 25MW / 50MWh Tesla Powerpack battery.
The Gannawarra Solar Farm is 94.9% owned by WIRSOL and 5.1% by Edify Energy and was financed in a portfolio transaction that included the Whitsunday and Hamilton Solar Farms. Once operational, the solar farm will produce enough energy to power approx. 18’100 homes in the region, whilst preventing the emission of approx. 137’000 tonnes of C02 per year.
