Ravenswood Solar Farm is proposed to be constructed on private land approximately 14 kilometres north of Castlemaine and approximately 20 km south of Bendigo, in Victoria
The proposed solar farm will consist of approximately 185,000 solar panels installed across the 306-hectare site. The solar farm will have a 63-megawatt (MW) capacity of clean, renewable energy – enough to power approx. 40,000 average Victorian homes. The solar farm will be connected to the electricity network via the existing transmission line on Reids Lane.
Ravenswood Solar Farm will also include a 20WMhr Battery Energy Storage System (BESS). By including capacity to store power onsite, FRV will extend the amount of time Ravenswood Solar Farm can provide renewable energy to the grid.
