Located in the Shire of Gannawarra, in the Australian State of Victoria, Cohuna Solar PV Project is approximately 8 km south of the Cohuna township.

The works started in April 2019 and are slated to close-off by year’s end. When fully operational, Cohuna will boast about 87,000 bi-faced panels that harness sunlight on both sides to achieve improved efficiency in energy generation. With 34 MW of installed capacity, the plant will be able to generate 77 GW/h per year and decrease CO2 emissions by about 70,200 tons over 12 months.

Energy generated in Cohuna and the ensuing green certificates will be marketed through a wide-ranging commercial framework agreed with the State of Victoria.

Work progress status



Status of construction phase

Construction of the Cohuna solar park is following our “Sustainable Building Site” model, a collection of best practices aimed at minimizing the impact of plant construction on the environment, waste, water and people. Energy derived from renewable resources is being used inside the Cohuna building site, thereby minimizing C02 emissions. The waste produced is being recycled, and concrete, measurable actions are being taken to mitigate resource use. As construction progresses, further mitigating actions will be planned and carried out
