The proposed Springdale Solar Farm is a 120 megawatt (MW) solar farm project located in Sutton NSW. The solar farm is 190 hectares (470 acres) in size. The project is being developed by Renew Estate Pty Ltd, an Australian renewable energy company.
The Springdale Solar Farm Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be on public exhibition from 18 July until 28 August. The EIS is available online at the NSW Major Projects Register and hard copies can be viewed at the Yass Valley Council office, Sutton Post Office and Gundaroo Post Office.

About the Project
The proposed Springdale Solar Farm is a 120 megawatt (MW) solar farm project. A solar farm of this size is expected to produce over 230 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of renewable energy each year, enough to power approximately 35,000 Australian homes.
The project will feature high-efficiency photovoltaic (PV) modules mounted on a single-axis tracking array structure. The tracking system will orient the solar modules to follow the sun from east to west each day. The tracking structures will be mounted on piles, which will be screwed or pile driven, eliminating the need for concrete and foundations.
The operational lifetime of the solar farm would be 30 years, at which time the site will either be decommissioned or continue to operate (after potentially being refurbished). Decommissioning would return the site to the pre-development condition.
