Yarranlea Solar Farm
CLEAN ENERGY FOR 42,000 HOMES
The Yarranlea Solar Farm, owned and operated by Risen Energy, is situated on 250ha of sparsely vegetated farmland about 50km west of Toowoomba.
The solar farm has a generation capacity of up to 103MW, enough to power up to 32,000 homes.
30+ Years’ Operating Life
Yarranlea connects to the power grid using the existing Ergon Energy infrastructure, located adjacent to the development site. This allows for the transmission of power into Toowoomba via the Middle Ridge Bulk Supply Substation.
The latest PV panel technology and integrated battery storage supply power to the grid during periods of peak demand. Completed in 2019, the solar farm has an operating life of 30 years, with the option for extensions.
The project uses Risen’s 360/365W Mono 1500VDC panels.
