Frasers Solar Farm
Located just off Traralgon-Maffra Road, Frasers Solar Farm is well positioned to receive the maximum amount of solar irradiation. The proposed site predominantly has an even surface and was generally cleared for agriculture, minimising any potential environmental impacts of development.
The project also presents a new opportunity for vertical farming, which means, having multiple layers of productive functions within the same footprint. For example, the top layer will be the solar panels generating clean electricity. The middle layer will be the sheep which will graze on the lower layer grass land. The sheep will also enjoy shading and protection provided by the panels.
The Frasers Solar Farm is estimated to have a generation capacity of up to 75 megawatts, which will provide power to approximately 25,000 homes. The project will greatly reduce greenhouse gases and carbon emissions, ultimately helping to mitigate the effects of climate change, such as drought and wild weather, as experienced by many parts of Australia. The local economy can also expect to prosper from the development, as business opportunities and tourism growth flourishes throughout the project’s various stages.
The global challenge set by climate change demands to be met with responsive and effective action. With our passion and innovation, we are representing the charge towards a more sustainable Australia in the fight against climate change.
We believe in farming a clean and renewable source of energy for the local community that helps minimise the carbon footprint on the environment. The inexhaustibility of solar energy enables us to continuously produce clean electricity for the lifetime of the project.
At South Energy, we are paving the way for a more sustainable future with our renewable energy projects – such as the proposed Frasers Solar Farm, to ensure a bright future for generations to come.
