Tick for Orange Grove solar farm near Gunnedah

The 110MW Orange Grove solar farm has been issued planning approval following an assessment by the NSW Independent Planning Commission, with the project set to be constructed just outside the town of Gunnedah in the north of the state.

Renew Economy is reporting the Orange Grove Solar Farm is being developed by Overland Sun Farming, which has established itself specifically to pursue projects in rural and regional areas.

The 110MW project will include 330,000 solar panels and is expected to create 80 jobs during the construction phase. It would be Overland’s fifth Australian project, which already operates the 22.5MW Hughenden solar farm, and has been involved in the development of the  Karadoc (112MW), Wemen (109MW) and Yatpool (112MW) projects in Victoria.
