Planning approval for Wesley Vale Solar Farm
Latrobe Council has today announced development approval for the Wesley Vale Solar Farm near Devonport, which will become Tasmania’s largest solar farm. The development will supply up to 12.5 megawatts (a.c.) of renewable energy to the grid, enough to power 2,900 homes.
The project will strengthen and diversify Tasmania's renewable energy mix, and complement the hydro-electric backbone.
Epuron is excited to see the project enter the next phase of development. We appreciate the efforts made by Council and the local community to reach this milestone, and are committed to continuing our engagement with all project stakeholders.
Epuron will now work on finalising the grid connection arrangements for this project and preparing for construction.
