Sunshine Coast Solar Farm

The Solar Farm has 57,960 panels and generates enough electricity to power approximately 5000 homes.

Sunshine Coast Council is Australia’s first local government in Australia to build, own and operate its own solar farm.

The 15 megawatt (MW) fixed tilt Solar Farm is located at 909 Yandina-Coolum Road, Valdora. The generation of renewable energy from the solar farm offsets council's annual electricity consumption across all its facilities and operations.

It complements the broader Sunshine Coast community's transition to renewable energy.

Sunshine Coast Council acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share.
We commit to working in partnership with the Traditional Custodians and the broader First Nations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) community to support self-determination through economic and community development.
