Planning approval for George Town Solar Farm

George Town Council has today announced approval for the George Town Solar Farm, which will become Tasmania’s first utility-scale solar farm. The development will cover approximately 12 hectares and supply up to 5 megawatts (a.c.) of renewable energy to the grid. The project will utilise tracking photovoltaic (PV) systems which will increase the supply output at the start and end of the day when energy demand is high.

Epuron is very excited to progress it’s first Tasmanian solar farm. This project will offer tangible benefits to the local community whilst diversifying and strengthening the state’s energy mix.

Epuron is now finalising the grid connection arrangements for this project and preparing for construction to commence in 2018. Epuron would like to thank the George Town Council and local community for their support and dedication.
