About Clermont Solar Farm
Clermont Solar Farm will be a single-axis tracking project, located the town of Clermont, 106km north of Emerald, Queensland. The site will have an installed capacity of approx. 89-megawatt peak (MWp) DC and will span an area of approximately 497 acres.
Owned by WIRCON GmbH, parent company of WIRSOL, Australia’s largest integrated renewable energy developer*, Clermont will be their third large-scale solar operation in the state of Queensland. WIRSOL is working hard to realise renewable energy systems of all sizes, using our extensive experience gathered from building more than 800MWp of renewable energy projects internationally.
Clermont Solar Farm is financed by the CEFC (Clean Energy Finance Corporation) and will commence construction in February 2018, with an active timeline of 9 months. Once operational, the solar farm will produce enough energy to power approx. 31,000 homes in the region, whilst preventing the emission of approx. 107,000 tonnes of C02.
