Numurkah Solar farm
“ZEN Energy acknowledges the Yorta Yorta people, traditional custodians of the land on which Numurkah Solar Farm stands. We recognise their continuing connection to country and culture.”
The Numurkah Solar Farm, at 128 MW, is the largest in Victoria. The farm is located 6km south of Numurkah in Northern Victoria, a location with that rare combination of plentiful sunlight and proximity to transmission lines. Neoen owns and operates the solar farm, and Downer provides on-site operations and maintenance services. Downer was also the engineering, procurement and design (EPC) contractor for the solar farm. Construction began in October 2018 and was completed just nine months later in July 2019.
ZEN Energy uses the Numurkah Solar Farm to supply 100% renewable electricity to the CSIRO’s Victorian sites. In an agreement with Neoen and the Victorian Government, Numurkah Solar Farm also helps power the Melbourne Tram Network.
