Sebastopol Solar Farm is located approximately 4 kilometres south east of Sebastopol and approximately 16 kilometres south of Temora. The site is located within the Temora Local Government Area, with the southern boundary of the site bordering the Junee Local Government Area. Access to the site via Eurolee Road falls within the Junee Local Government Area.

The site covers approximately 248 hectares of private rural land which is currently livestock grazing. The choice of this location was driven by a combination of:

  • Excellent solar irradiation
  • Low level of environmental impact – the site has been largely cleared and heavily disturbed by previous cultivation and cropping
  • Level terrain for cost effective construction
  • Ideal location on the national electricity grid for exporting the solar farm’s electricity into the existing network.
  • Excellent access to local and major roads
  • Land zoning has not been changed as solar farms are a compatible activity for development within the existing zone.
