Ground-breaking of Northam Solar Farm project

Energy Minister Ben Wyatt has today attended the ground-breaking ceremony for the State’s newest solar farm at Northam.

 

The Northam Solar Farm project will be developed by Carnegie Clean Energy in partnership with Indigenous Business Australia and Bookitja Ptd Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Perth Noongar Foundation.

 

This partnership will provide important contracting opportunities to a number of Aboriginal businesses, as well as the opportunity for ongoing Noongar employment during both the construction and operation phases of this project.

 

The 10-megawatt project is expected to generate enough power for 3,000 households over the next 25 years.
