Construction of Normanton Solar Farm commenced May 2016. The Normanton Solar Farm partners Scouller Energy and Canadian Solar, will utilise proven solar technology and efficient construction practices, while also delivering seamless integration into Ergon Energy’s Electricity grid.
The Normanton Solar Farm is based at Lilyvale, a degraded ex-grazing property 5 km south of Normanton in Queensland’s Gulf Savannah region. The local council of Carpentaria Shire has sold Lilyvale to the Normanton Solar Farm. The Council is very supportive of this project, as it will provide local employment, utilise currently unproductive land, and reinforce the Gulf Savannah’s ‘clean, green’ brand associated with wild-caught fisheries and grass-fed cattle industry.
