Size: 64 MWac
The Warwick Solar Farm is a 64 MWac renewable energy facility in the Southern Downs Region of Queensland, which is approximately 160km west of Brisbane.
The project was developed by Terrain Solar and acquired by the University of Queensland in 2018 at a ready-to-build status, enabling them to become the first major university in the world to offset 100 per cent of their electricity use with renewable power produced from their own assets.
The University of Queensland will also use the project as a research and teaching facility. Construction commenced in February 2019 and was formally opened in July 2020.
The Warwick Solar Farm will utilise low impact solar photovoltaic technology to generate approximately 154,000 MWh of clean energy every year, reducing emissions in the electricity sector by approximately 125,000 tonnes of CO2e annually.
