SolarShare officially launches investments for Australia’s largest Community Solar Farm

SolarShare will soon be host to Australia’s largest community-owned solar farm.

They have just released an entertaining video about the project featuring some of the community investors and volunteer team members - click here to access. 

Just before Christmas, the ACT Government approved SolarShare’s application for a feed-in tariff for its flagship 1MW solar farm to be located next door to Mount Majura Solar Farm.

This presents a unique opportunity to anyone who may have difficulty getting their own residential solar panels, including those renting, living in apartments, or with limited finances.  

The project is open for anyone in the ACT to take part in owning a portion of a utility scaled solar farm.

SolarShare allows ACT residents to purchase shares in the solar farm and receive a financial return on their investment when energy is sold to Canberra’s power grid.

Once complete, SolarShare’s flagship solar farm will generate enough clean energy to power 260 homes, preventing some 1,700 tonnes of CO₂ a year from polluting the atmosphere.

Construction will begin in the third quarter of 2019.
