Monford is currently building the 132 MWdc Merredin Solar Farm for Risen Energy (Australia). Merredin Solar Farm is the largest solar farm committed to construction in Western Australia and once connected, will have an expected output of 281GWh of electricity annually, generating enough energy to power approximately 42,000 Western Australian homes. It is located approximately 260km east of Perth in Western Australia’s Central Wheatbelt region.
When completed, the Merredin solar farm will consist of approximately 360,000 solar panels mounted on a single axis tracking system. 22 inverter stations will convert the power from the solar panels to alternating current (AC) before entering an onsite substation. A transformer within the substation will then increase the voltage for injection to the Merredin Terminal Substation.
