Bomen Solar Farm in NSW gets green light for construction
By Russell Burford on 31 October 2018
Renew Estate, a renewable energy company, has received the planning approval for its $164 million Bomen Solar Farm development located near Bomen Business Park.
The 120MW solar farm will include a 40MW battery storage and will be located approximately seven kilometres northeast of the Wagga Wagga CBD, on a 250-hectare site. It is also expected to produce more than 230GWh of annual renewable energy enough to power up to 36,000 homes, once it is up and operational. The project is expected to generate jobs for up to 200 workers during peak construction.
Construction is set to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2019.
