Solar farm build under way

By Country News

Enel Green Power Australia has started construction of the 34MW Cohuna Solar Farm at Horfield.

‘‘Cohuna’s zero-emission energy will be produced using highly efficient bifacial panels, which will maximise our support to the state of Victoria in the pursuit of its renewable energy targets,’’ Enel Green Power head Antonio Cammisecra said.

The solar farm is set to enter into commercial operation by the end of the year and is expected to generate up to 77GWh each year.

The new solar project, which will be composed of about 87000 bifacial modules, will be connected to the local distribution grid through the Cohuna Zone Substation.
