Morgan Solar Farm
Morgan solar farm will play an important role in contributing to both the increasing need for affordable, sustainable, renewable energy and in tackling the global issues of climate change.
The project consists of a large-scale solar photovoltaic generation facility, potentially including battery storage upon request, with an estimated capacity of 100MW, enough to power over 47,400 houses. Further decisions around alternatives will be made during detailed design with a view to minimising environmental and social impacts while maintaining the investment viability.
