The Ergon Energy Solar Farm located at Windorah in outback Queensland was commissioned in 2009, and provides the Windorah township and some outlying properties with electricity.
The generation of up to 360,000 kilowatt hours of electricity each year greatly reduces the amount of diesel previously used for supply needs.
Although there are no tours of the solar farm, it is located across the road from their airport, and a perfect photo opportunity and information board is provided, with plenty of space to pull over.
Photographers have taken some great shots of their Solar Farm, with their amazing sunsets, and even the reflection of the Milky Way in the panels!
