White Rock Solar Farm
is located adjacent to White Rock Wind Farm
White Rock Solar Farm is a 20 MW solar PV development located adjacent to the northern end of White Rock Wind Farm, 20 km west of Glen Innes.
White Rock Solar Farm forms a pioneering hybrid solar/wind renewable energy facility in the New England Tablelands of NSW. White Rock Solar Farm shares the wind farm grid connection facilities and other infrastructure, including the substation, some access tracks and internal 33 kV underground electrical cabling. The shared infrastructure maximises the use of available facilities without requiring construction of additional infrastructure elsewhere.
The White Rock Solar Farm project received Development Consent from the NSW Department of Planning and Environment on 14 June 2016. Construction was completed in the second half of 2018 and the project has been operational since.
The project was supported in the planning and construction phases by Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) as one of 12 large scale solar projects aiming to increase experience in planning and building supply chains.
The solar farm powers approximately 8,000 NSW homes each year.
