Will there be any glint and glare from the solar farm?

Solar panels are designed to absorb as much sunlight as possible and convert it into electricity. Minimising the panels’ reflectivity is a goal of panel design, manufacture and installation. As such, modern solar panels, as proposed for the Waroona Solar Farm, are treated with anti-reflective coatings, meaning they reflect significantly less light than other common materials such as paint and standard glass.

Will landscaping be provided as screening for surrounding properties?

A landscape buffer will be provided along the project boundary to protect the area’s visual amenity. Landscaping will include a mix of indigenous shrubs and trees of varied heights and will have the added benefit of creating important new habitats for native fauna, thus supporting the region’s biodiversity.
