Planning Permit Approved

South Energy is very proud to announce that our solar farm is coming to eastern Victoria, after the project received a planning permit from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) in September 2020.

Located in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley, the Frasers Solar Farm is a utility-scale renewable energy project that covers about 110 hectares of land. It will be located approximately 2km south of Toongabbie, one of the main towns in the Latrobe Valley region of Victoria.

With an estimated network capacity of 75 megawatts (MW), the Frasers Solar Farm is expected to generate enough clean power for approximately 29,000 households – this will help Australians reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 154,000 tonnes per year.

As a result of receiving the permit, South Energy has also reached a notable milestone, providing us with the opportunity to reflect, recognise and show gratitude for the enormous effort our dedicated project team has been putting in. South Energy would like to sincerely say thank you to all community members and authorities involved for the support given to the project. We are honoured to be part of a tremendous community and look forward to strengthening our bonds and prosperity.

South Energy remains committed to continuing to collaborate with everyone towards the delivery of the project. Hence, the public is encouraged and welcome to contact us should they have any questions or wishes to know more about the project.

The Frasers Solar Farm project is currently in the process of obtaining the grid connection approval, where we aim to be construction-ready by the end of this year. The project is envisaged to commence construction in 2021 and be fully operational by late 2022.

Thank you to the community for your support

South Energy would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to the members of the community who attended the information session on Sunday, 15 September 2019 – especially to those who helped organise the event at the Glengarry Mechanics Hall.

For those who could not attend or have any further questions, please feel free to contact us via email frasers@southenergy.com.aushould you wish to discuss the project in more detail.

Community Information Drop-In Session 15/09/19

As you may be aware, South Energy is proposing a 75-megawatt solar farm near Glengarry North, Victoria. Known as Frasers Solar Farm, the project will generate enough clean power for the equivalent of approximately 25,000 households and reduce harmful carbon dioxide emissions by the equivalent of approximately 157,000 tonnes per year (equal to taking 33,000 cars off the road).

At this stage, South Energy is in the process of drafting a Development Application to be submitted to Latrobe City Council. We understand this proposal is of interest to you and would like to invite you to attend the Glengarry Community Drop-in Session we will be hosting at the Glengarry Mechanics Hall on Sunday, 15 September from 1-3:30PM.

With catering by the Glengarry Community Association, the drop-in session will be an ideal opportunity to have your questions answered by members of the project team.
