We created this page as a resource for information about the Bulli Creek Solar Farm following its planning approval in 2015.
About the Bulli Creek Solar Farm
The Bulli Creek Solar Farm is to be constructed about 150 kilometers west of Toowoomba and will span roughly 13,000 acres of cattle grazing land. Once all stages have been completed the Bulli Creek Solar Farm will be the largest project of its kind in Australia – and among the largest in the world.
In early 2015, the Bulli Creek project received approval from the Toowoomba Regional Council for a total footprint of up to 2 gigawatts (2,000 megawatts) over the next eight years. It has the option of building out the site in manageable stages of up to 500MW or more per stage.
