Timeline

Milestones

Local Context

The Bungala Solar Farm was constructed on about 600 hectares of land, which was formerly an ostrich farm also used for rearing sheep and cows, owned by the Bungala Aboriginal Corporation, a local indigenous community organisation. The Project was Enel Green Power’s first renewable power plant in Australia.

As part of the Bungala Solar Farm’s construction, thanks to an industry/government partnership, a training and employment program was provided for approximately 70 members of the local Aboriginal community. This program aligns with Enel Green Power’s strategy of Creating Shared Value (CSV) by working towards achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, in particular SDG 8: to promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all.

Construction of the Bungala Solar Farm followed Enel Green Power’s 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.
