Moree Solar Farm (MSF) has a capacity of 56MWac (70MWp) and will generate enough electricity to supply around 24,000 homes.
MSF is located 10 km south of Moree, in northern New South Wales.
Construction of the plant was completed in 2016 and it has an operating life of around 30 years.
The technology used is solar PV-Polycrystalline modules with horizontal tracking.
MWac refers to power in alternating current, whereas MWp refers to the installed capacity of the modules, measured in direct current. Solar farm developers often install more panels than the capability of the inverters are rated for in order to generate the maximum possible volume of electricity throughout the day.
The inverters convert the energy produced by the modules from direct current to alternating current suitable for injection into the grid.
