Located in Victoria's Central North REZ

The Glenrowan Solar Farm is a 130MWac solar project located 2km south-west of Glenrowan, in the Rural City of Wangaratta, approximately 230 kilometres north-east of Melbourne, Victoria.

The location sits within Victoria’s Central North Renewable Energy Zone (REZ), one of six across the state supporting the Victorian Government’s Renewable Energy Target (VRET) of 50% by 2030 and the transition to a carbon-neutral future.

Once in full operation, the solar farm will supply renewable electricity to the national electricity market, generating power for approximately 45,000 Australian homes.

Planning and environmental management

Planning and environmental management

The project is nearing the end of its construction phase, which is due for completion in April / May 2024. See our project's planning permit here and read more about our approach to planning and environmental management by clicking the Fact Sheet link below.

The project has employed 72 direct full-time equivalent jobs and this number is expected to increase to approximately 125 during construction. We anticipate there will be four ongoing full-time equivalent jobs during operation and maintenance, including three locally-based electricians.

Operations and renewable energy generation started at the end of 2023, as we undertook testing and commissioning. This is now complete and we are preparing for full operation in Q2 2024.
