North Wagga small-scale Solar Farm

Project Overview

Risen Energy Australia is proposing to develop a small-scale 5MW Solar Farm near North Wagga.

The proposed small-scale Solar Farm development site is to be located within 59 Hillary Street, North Wagga Wagga NSW and is approximately 3.5 km from the Wagga Wagga Town centre. This site has been selected after a technical assessment of grid connection capabilities and sun irrigation levels.

Risen Energy Australia have completed a range of technical assessments including native vegetation and a Cultural Heritage Assessment to designa small-scale project, which respects the site context, local environment and mitigates community impact.
