Making a difference in local communities

OVERVIEW

The Goorambat Solar Farms, consisting of the approved Goorambat East Solar Farm (250MW) 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

Solar farms are quiet, with the same solar panels you would place on your roof – there are just more of them.

AGRISOLAR

Sheep graze peacefully under the solar panels to help keep the grass down while the panels also provide shade and protection.

GOORAMBAT EAST SOLAR FARM

Located east of the Benalla-Tocumwal Road and Broken Creek, this solar farm was approved in December 2019 by the Benalla Rural City Council and will power 105,000 Victorian homes.

GOORAMBAT WEST SOLAR FARM

West of Broken Creek is the potential for Neoen to expand the solar farm capacity when grid upgrades are available. Currently cultural heritage studies are underway.

GOORAMBAT WEST SOLAR FARM

West of Broken Creek, landowners have signed with Neoen for a potential 400MW+ solar farm.
 

LOCATION

The project is comprised of the Goorambat East Solar Farm approximately 12km north of Benalla, Victoria and the Goorambat West Solar Farm approximately 7km west, north of Stewarton Rd towards Dookie.

Community-led Solar Farm

Neoen produce affordable reliable electricity from natural renewable sources such as the sun and wind.

With 12 years’ experience behind us, our technologies are tried, tested and proven. Our South Australian Big Battery has been keeping the lights on in SA since 2017, and saved consumers over $116 million in 2019 alone !

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 across Australia.
