One of the “smartest solar projects in the country” has been officially switched on near Moree.
The project was cutting-edge and showed “what the future could possibly be like right across rural and remote NSW,” Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall said as he opened Kanowna Solar Farm.
The nine-megawatt project at Bullarah, 95km west of Moree, was built by Uralla-based company Meralli Solar. The opening attracted a crowd of about 50 investors, guests and suppliers.
“This solar farm is renewable energy at its absolute cutting edge and represents what the future could possibly be like right across rural and remote NSW,” Mr Marshall said.
