Project background

The 400 MW Stubbo Solar Farm and Battery Project was granted approval by the NSW Government in June 2021, following 14 months of detailed planning and consultation with the local community.

The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment released the final assessment decision, concluding that the project would help diversify the local economy, create new local and regional jobs and support the transition of the state’s energy sector to renewable sources.

The Stubbo Solar Farm will be located about 10 kilometres north of Gulgong in the Mid-Western Regional Council LGA. It will be developed across a 1,250-hectare site of cleared grazing land in the NSW Government’s Central West- Orana Renewable Energy Zone.

The project will create approximately 400 jobs during the peak of the construction period, 10 ongoing jobs and generate enough energy to power almost 150,000 NSW homes.

The project includes a 200 MWh battery energy storage system, meaning the project can dispatch energy when it is most needed during peak hours and provide important grid stability services.
