The Gannawarra Solar Farm is a 60.0 MW DC single-axis tracking project located west of Kerang in north-west Victoria. It is the first large-scale solar farm to be constructed in Victoria and is integrated with the Gannawarra Energy Storage System – a 25MW / 50MWh Tesla Powerpack battery.
The Gannawarra Solar Farm is 94.9% owned by Wirsol and 5.1% by Edify Energy and was financed in a portfolio transaction that included the Whitsunday and Hamilton Solar Farms.
In November 2020, sheep were introduced to the Gannawarra Solar and Energy Storage Farm as part of an agrisolar trial in partnership with the Landowner. The Agrisolar trial at Gannawarra is a new industry benchmark, with the introduction of sheep grazing the first of its kind on the same land that hosts Australia’s first utility–scale solar and battery power station.
