Gympie’s Giant Solar Farm: Where, When, How

SCOTT ARMSTRONG

SolarQ Managing Director - Strategy and Development Delivery

SolarQ has development approval to build 350MW(ac) of Solar PV (phase 1), of an ultimate $2billion 1,000MW solar farm and 4,000MWh battery storage development, near Gympie. The project, upon completion, will supply 15% of South East Queensland’s electricity demand.

Why Gympie? What will such an enormous project look like? What are the challenges in getting such a project off the ground, and how have they been overcome? What is the timeline? What are the next steps?

An invitation is extended to attend a presentation from SolarQ’s Managing Director, on delivering significant renewable energy production and storage.
