The project

Cohuna Solar Farm

The Project is located approximately 8 km south of Cohuna, in the Shire of Gannawarra, within the State of Victoria, Australia. The project is a 34 MW utility scale solar farm using highly efficient bi-facial photovoltaic (PV) modules, which can absorb light irradiance from both sides of the module and so are able to capture additional energy from light reflected from the ground.





Energy production

77 GWh


Operational capacity

34 MW


Australian homes powered (annually)

Approximately 16,900 homes

Project Approvals

The Cohuna Solar Farm Project was jointly developed with Lesson Group, a Victoria-based solar power systems developer. Enel Green Power acquired the Project from the Lesson Group in 2018. 

The relevant Development Approvals for the Cohuna Solar Farm have been obtained from the Gannawarra Shire Council. The Approvals set out conditions that must be complied with in undertaking the development. The conditions cover construction, operation, decommissioning, and administrative matters. 



Contribution to Victorian Renewable Energy Target

The Cohuna Solar Farm was awarded, through a competitive tender process, a 15-year Power Purchase Agreement (VRET Support Agreement) with the State of Victoria, for energy and Large-Scale Generation Certificates of (LGCs). In this way, the Cohuna Solar Farm is directly contributing towards achieving the Victorian Government’s Victorian Renewable Energy Target (VRET) of 50 per cent by 2030.

The Sustainable Construction Site Model

Construction of the Cohuna Solar Farm followed our Sustainable Construction Site model, a collection of best practices aimed at minimizing the impact of plant construction on the environment, waste, water and people. Starting from the conception and design phase, the focus for the site was to be sustainable, maximizing the potential environmental and social benefits for the construction site, and later the operating power plant.
