Cohuna Solar Farm

Cohuna Solar Farm

The Project is located approximately 8 km south of the Cohuna Township, in the Shire of Gannawarra, within the State of Victoria, Australia.

The project

The Sun of Australia

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.
