About Wallaroo Solar Farm

We, at New Energy Development, are reaching out to inform you about the Wallaroo Solar Farm (100 MW AC), a new exciting development proposed in the locality of Wallaroo adjacent to the New South Wales (NSW) / Australian Capital Territory (ACT) border, refer to the Figure (red outline) above. Once operational, this project would feed electricity into the transmission network and be capable of producing enough clean renewable energy to supply approximately 48,000 NSW and ACT homes.

The Wallaroo Solar Farm is a joint venture project being proposed by New Energy Development and Univergy International.

The overall site for Wallaroo Solar Farm (the Project) is approximately 391 hectares with the solar array proposed to occupy approximately 209 hectares. Refer to the attached newsletter for more information about the project. 

A number of high level studies have already begun which will provide in-depth consideration of biodiversity, cultural heritage, visual amenity, noise, traffic, soil and socio-economic reporting. These studies will be progressed as part of a comprehensive Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) which will be submitted with the planning application and also made available for public access.The preliminary investigation findings are presented in the Scoping Report, which will shortly be on public display at https://www.planningportal.nsw.gov.au/major-projects.

We are committed to a project that is responsive to the site and community in which it is located. As future neighbours of the proposed project, we would appreciate the opportunity to address any questions you may have and incorporate your feedback into our project development.

Please fill in the feedback form on this site.
