How much concrete is necessary for the farm’s construction?
Concrete will only be required for parts of the substation and battery storage foundation, and possibly for inverter plinths, depending on the final design. The solar panels, which comprise most of the site infrastructure, are mounted on piles that are driven into the ground, thus not requiring concrete.
Covering approximately 300 hectares, the Waroona Solar Farm is a utility-scale renewable energy project with a proposed installed capacity of approximately 180 megawatts.
A Community Investment Program will be initiated to allocate funding for local community projects. This is supplementary to the many diverse economic opportunities resulting directly and indirectly from the project’s development.
