About Clermont Solar Farm

Clermont Solar Farm is a single-axis tracking project, located the town of Clermont, 106km north of Emerald, Queensland. The site has an installed capacity of approx. 89-megawatt peak (MWp) DC and spans across an area of approximately 497 acres.

Owned by WIRCON GmbH, parent company of WIRSOL, Australia’s largest integrated renewable energy developer*, Clermont is the third large-scale solar operation in their portfolio based in the state of Queensland. WIRSOL is working hard to realise renewable energy systems of all sizes, using 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 recently entered into it’s commissioning phase in June 2019, following an impressive 9-month construction programme. Once fully 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.
