Cohuna Solar Plant is a 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.
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 at Cohuna Solar Farm
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.
As part of EGP Creating Shared Value (CSV) model, we are committed to working closely with the local community to enhance the economic and social conditions in the local area.
For this reason, EGP is seeking feedback from the community, to better understand local values and priorities and inform planning for potential initiatives to be undertaken within the local area close to the project site.
EGP will review the survey results and work to shape its benefit sharing initiatives to align with community preferences, where feasible and where these are compatible with the company values, policies and capabilities.
We would appreciate your input through the following quick survey.
Survey feedback shall close for consideration on 22/11/2023.
