People Power and Shoalhaven Solar Farm

Article written by Michael Bloch and originally published on

Site works have kicked off for New South Wales’ Shoalhaven Solar Farm, a project driven by community group Repower Shoalhaven.

To be located off Nowra Hill Road in South Nowra, the facility is a 3MW(ac) project on a 5 hectare site previously used as a waste depot and currently utilised for dumping/storage of various materials. One of the attractive features of the site for such a project is its proximity to Endeavour Energy’s 11KV network.

The 8,000 solar panels making up the clean power station are expected to generate 5,900 MWh annually, which is enough electricity to supply the equivalent of around 1,050 New South Wales households.

At this point, a 30 year lease on the site has been paid, purchase orders have already been placed for the panels and solar inverter, and site works are under way.
