Metz Solar Farm will be located approximately 15 kilometres from Armidale in New South Wales. The site is situated in the Armidale Regional Council. Access to the site will be from Waterfall Way/Bayley Park Rd intersection.
The site covers approximately 430 hectares of private rural land. The choice of this location for the solar farm is driven by a combination of
- Excellent solar irradiation.
- Ideal location on the national electricity grid for exporting the solar farm’s electricity into the existing network.
- Excellent access to local and major roads.
The project has been designed to fit the available land and to maximise the facility’s energy generation capacity and energy yield.
The project will be built on private land that will be leased from the landowners via a long-term lease agreement.
