Australia takes the lead in solar energy generation

The Karadoc Solar Farm

We are undertaking one of Australia’s largest ever solar farms in Northern Victoria. Once operational the Karadoc solar farm will produce 112 MW of power, that’s enough electricity to power over 110,000 homes.

The huge solar farm will be located 35km south of the township of Mildura. Currently under development, we have now secured planning permission for the project and started the construction of the power lines that will be used to transport the energy into the electricity network. Once complete, we will continue to undertake the operations and maintenance of the solar farm.

Daniel Gäfke, Managing Director of BayWa r.e. Solar Pte Ltd. “The Karadoc solar farm is the largest installation ever undertaken by BayWa r.e and is a great showcase of our ability to procure, design and build projects of this size anywhere in the world. Australia is a very important market for us and this investment is testament to the commitment we have to help increase Australia’s renewable energy capacity.”
