How much energy will the farm generate, and will it affect supply security and electricity prices?
Waroona Solar Farm will have an estimated network capacity of 180 megawatts and is expected to generate enough clean power for the equivalent of approximately 67,000 households.
If power generated from the farm can meet local demands, then there may be no need to import power from elsewhere. Regardless, Waroona Solar Farm will help reduce the pressure on powerlines and improve security of supply.
As the electricity market is mainly driven by supply and demand, the increased supply in the market will stabilise electricity prices.
