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.
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.
