The project be located approximately 1 kilometre north-west of Gnarwarre. The site is located within the Surf Coast Council area.

The site covers approximately 7 hectares, and previously used for farming. The choice of this location was driven by a combination of:

  • Low level of environmental impact – the site is largely cleared of dense vegetation
  • Level terrain for cost effective construction
  • Ideal location on the national electricity grid for exporting the solar farm’s electricity into the existing network.
  • Excellent access to local and major roads

FRV is currently preparing design and construction.

The project will be designed to fit the available land and to maximize the facility’s energy generation capacity and energy yield.

The project layout will be specifically designed to avoid disturbing Aboriginal Cultural sensitivity areas if any.
