Construction is proposed to commence in 2022, with completion occurring approximately 12 to 18 months after that. Any works would take place within working hours as permitted by law (generally weekdays from 7AM to 6PM). Should works need to be done on Saturday, Environment Protection Authority Western Australia guidelines will be followed (permitted working hours vary depending on the types of works).
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.
