    Kerang Solar Farm

    The Kerang Solar Farm is proposed on the outskirts of Kerang in the Gannawarra Shire of Northern Victoria.

     

    The solar farm will be constructed on 100Ha of cleared, level land which was historically used for agriculture, including grazing and a former dairy operation. The location was chosen for its high exposure to solar radiation and proximity to the electricity grid.

    Planning approval was granted by the Local Government Authority Gannawarra Shire Council in September 2017 for the development of a solar farm. The A$55M project will generate significant economic activity in the Gannawarra Shire and surrounds.
