Located in Central Victoria, 33km east of Bendigo in the communities of Muskerry and Toolleen, the Muskerry Solar Power Station is currently in the development phase. Developed by Edify, the project will stretch across approximately 500 hectares of predominantly grazed land. The power station, once complete, could generate up to 612,000 MWh per annum of renewable energy.
Planning Application is complete for the project, with supporting third party specialist technical reports. The application package has been submitted to the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (DEECA), for each Local Government Area. The application process involves pre-lodgment with DEECA, both councils and the community, for which there is continuous consultation.
The Project will connect into the AusNet 220kV distribution system, providing green energy to 93,000 households. At peak construction, the Project will employ approximately 350 staff, predominantly sourcing from the local community.
The Muskerry Solar Power Station is on the traditional land of the Taungurung First Nation People. Edify acknowledges the traditional custodians of the Taungurung people, whose many clans share one language and a deep spiritual connection with Country
