Badgingarra Solar Farm
The Badgingarra Solar Farm (BSF) is being constructed adjacent to APA’s Emu Downs Wind Farm, across 40 hectares of land on the corner of Bibby Road and Yerramullah Road. The $40 million development will be co-located with the Badgingarra Wind Farm.
BSF will consist of almost 62,000 panels, utilising a NEXTracker single axis tracker system and providing a total output of 17.5 megawatts to the Western Power grid.
The potential output of BSF is the equivalent power required for more than 6,000 Western Australian homes, and will have the ability to save 32,900 tonnes of greenhouse emissions annually.
The construction of BSF commenced in early August 2018 and is due for completion in the first half of 2019.
Badgingarra Solar Farm is part of APA's Western Australian Energy Precinct.
