Construction started in Jan 2017 and was completed in April 2018. It has been operational ever since.
Parkes Solar Farm is one of 12 successful projects that received funding from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) in 2016.
The federal funding was provided to assist to develop large scale solar industry in Australia and demonstrating the feasibility of delivering sustainable, affordable and reliable renewal energy.
We are proud to have partnered with Bouygues-Construction who designed and built the solar farm.
The solar farm is now operated by Bouygues-Construction under a long-term contract with site operation and maintenance currently sub-contracted to ENcome, an independent Operation and Maintenance provider.
