The Fremantle Solar Farm will be located at the former South Fremantle landfill which was operated as a waste disposal site between 1930 and 1991. Epuron is working on the project in partnership with the City of Fremantle. Epuron hopes the project will be the first of many solar farms located on old landfill areas where development potential is otherwise very limited.
The proposed Fremantle Solar Farm would involve the construction and operation of over 10 hectares of solar panels and the required electrical infrastructure to connect the project to the local Western Power grid.
The project will be uniquely located on an old landfill site in an urban environment.
