Benefits of the project

It is anticipated that the project will provide a number of benefits to the local and wider community including:

  • creating employment opportunities, including a peak workforce of between 300-400 contractors during construction and up to seven full-time positions during operations;
  • generate enough electricity to power up to 105,000 homes each year;
  • assisting New South Wales to meet the renewable energy targets established under the NSW Government’s Renewable Energy Action Plan;
  • contribute to the Commonwealth Government’s target of 33,000 gigawatt hours (GWh) of renewable energy generated by 2020; and
  • play a role in increasing energy security by contributing to a more diverse energy mix.
innogy will continue to work closely with the local community as the Limondale solar farm transitions into construction and operations. innogy values and understands the importance the local community plays in bringing to life largescale infrastructure projects.
