MSF is located 10 km south of Moree, off the Newell Highway, in northern New South Wales.

  • During the site selection process over 50 locations across Australia were identified and assessed for development potential. Moree, known locally as big sky country, and taking its name from a Kamilaroi word meaning ‘rising sun’, was identified as the best location for this large-scale solar project.
  • The site was selected due to many factors, including the intense levels of solar radiation experienced in the area, a large amount of flat land available, Moree’s good transport links and the site’s proximity to the national electricity grid.
  • The plant site is in close proximity to strong transmission infrastructure, making connectivity of the plant feasible while minimising the impact on the natural environment.
