Sunshine Coast Solar Farm

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.
