Planning approval for Wesley Vale Solar Farm
Latrobe Council has today announced the approval of 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.
Most importantly, the project will strengthen and diversify Tasmania's energy mix, as a complement to the hydro-electric backbone.
Epuron is very excited to see the project enter the next phase of development. We appreciate the efforts already made by Council and the local community to reach this milestone, and we are committed to continuing our engagement with all project stakeholders.
Epuron is now finalising the grid connection arrangements for this project and preparing for construction to commence in 2019.
