Stubbo Solar Farm is a proposed 400 megawatt (MW) renewable energy generator across 1,000 hectares of mostly cleared grazing land in the Central West region of NSW. The site will allow rows of solar panels to be installed with enough height and space for sheep to graze in and around. The feasibility of a battery energy storage system is being investigated as part of the project and the solar farm will connect to the existing transmission network.
