The Australian Energy Review - - NEWS: RENEWABLE ENERGY -

THE $35 mil­lion, 11.2 megawatt (MW) Wil­liams­dale So­lar Farm of­fi­cially opened on 6 Oc­to­ber.

ACT Cli­mate Change and Sus­tain­abil­ity minister Shane Rat­ten­bury said the clean power gen­er­ated by Wil­liams­dale So­lar Farm was an­other step to­wards achiev­ing the Ter­ri­tory’s re­new­able elec­tric­ity tar­get.

“Wil­liams­dale So­lar Farm is now the fourth large-scale so­lar farm built in the ACT,” he said.

“As with the other projects, the Wil­liams­dale So­lar Farm also brings many other eco­nomic and re­search ben­e­fits to the re­gion.”

The fa­cil­ity is the ACT’S fourth so­lar farm, which com­bined will pro­duce up to 85,500MW each year; enough to power 11,000 homes.
