Bendigo and Ballarat Community Solar Parks

In late 2009 Central Victoria Solar City lead the charge in the development of large-scale renewable energy technology in Bendigo and Ballarat with the construction of two 300kW solar parks. The project developed these Parks as part of its mission to test new approaches in local, large-scale solar provision and they are Victoria’s first ground mounted, flat plate and grid-connected solar installations.

The Parks each produce approximately 450 megawatt hours of accredited GreenPower each year.  450 megawatt hours equates to switching on 4.5 million 100 watt light-bulbs simultaneously for an hour or providing enough power to run more than 1000 domestic fridges. This solar electricity is pumped back into the main electricity grid and goes towards reducing Australia’s reliance on non-renewable energy.

The Author

I took an interest in the Australian energy sector close to ten years ago and since then have monitored the trends, technologies and direction of the Australian Energy Market. I was drawn to the Australian solar market in 2008 and since then have worked heavily in the field. I am partnered with national and international solar energy companies, from manufacturers of solar panel and inverter technology, online software developers that introduce tools to quote, monitor and manage solar power systems and media organisations who like myself, closely monitor the solar and renewable energy sector.
