The Dysart Solar Energy Farm is located 8km East of Dysart, Queensland.

Project Details

The solar energy farm will consist of up to 360,000 solar PV panels on 280ha of land South East of the Dysart substation. The land is currently used as cropping land. It will be capable of delivering up to 100MW of renewable energy. 

The energy generated will be injected into the national electricity grid at the existing Dysart substation.

Project benefits

The Dysart Solar project will generate up to 100MW of renewable energy - enough to power around 36,000 homes & offset 170,000 tonnes of CO2 produced by coal-fired electricity generation every year. That’s the equivalent of removing around 40,000 cars from the roads.

Up to 300 site staff will be employed during the 24-month construction period, with around 2 permanent fulltime employees after construction. 

Community engagement & planning application

“Tilt Renewables values the strong relationships we’ve shared with landowners and local community groups on all our projects and we would like to build on these relationships for the proposed Dysart solar energy farm as well.”

Tilt Renewables have implemented a community benefit fund at most of our operating projects and we will be looking at establishing a similar scheme for this projects once operational. We will engage with local community closer to construction on an appropriate format and representative management committee for such a community fund.
