Sharing Benefits

Making a difference in local communities

OVERVIEW

Eglinton is a 150-200MW solar farm that is currently in the early stages of development.

It is predicted to supply approximately 400,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of clean renewable electricity into the national electricity system each year.

SOLAR

Solar farms are quiet, with the same solar panels you would place on your roof – there are just more of them.

AGRISOLAR

Sheep graze peacefully under the solar panels to help keep the grass down while the panels also provide shade and protection.

LOCATION

The Eglinton Solar Farm site is approximately 2.5km northeast of Eglinton, NSW and approximately 6km north of Bathurst, NSW.

The site was chosen because there are a number of high voltage transmission lines running through it, enabling the power to be easily exported into the grid.

Neoen appreciates your interest in the project. However please respect neighbours privacy and note Thomas Drive is mostly a private road.
