The Goorambat Solar Farms, consisting of the approved Goorambat East Solar Farm (250 MW) and the Goorambat West Solar Farm under development, are a community led initiative supporting utility scale renewable development for the Goorambat region.
Neoen have a long term interest in these renewable investment and are working with locals and landowners to adopt agrisolar techniques for best practice land management.
Solar farms are quiet, with the same solar panels you would place on your roof – there are just more of them.
Sheep graze peacefully under the solar panels to help keep the grass down while the panels also provide shade and protection.

Neoen has been contributing to Australia’s energy transition with 100% renewable energy since 2012.
With a balanced portfolio of wind, solar and big battery projects, we are aiming to achieve 10 GW by 2030. We own and operate all of the projects we build (rather than developing them to be sold) and as long-term neighbours we are committed to sharing the benefits with surrounding communities.
This dedication to community and environment has made us a renewable energy developer of choice in Australia.
