Yarranlea Solar Farm

Yarranlea Solar Farm is situated on 250ha of sparsely vegetated farmland about 50km west of Toowoomba. The farm has a generation capacity of up to 103MW, enough to power up to 32,000 homes. The project connects to the power grid using the existing Ergon Energy infrastructure, located adjacent to the development site. This will allow transmission of power into Toowoomba via the Middle Ridge Bulk Supply Substation.

The latest PV panel technology and integrated battery storage to allow it to supply power to the grid during periods of peak demand is utilised at Yarranlea Solar Farm. The completed facility will have an operating life of 30 years, with the option for extensions. At the end of the facilities useful operating life, all physical infrastructure will be decommissioned and the land returned to its former agricultural use.
