Will Waroona Solar Farm affect nearby property values?
Solar farms are not known to impact property values, either positively or negatively. They are quiet and safe to run, they provide energy security for the local area and their visual impact can be managed through appropriate vegetative screening.
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.
