ARP Australian Solar eyes Morwell Solar Farm

ARP Australian Solar is hoping to submit a planning application to the Victorian State Government by the end of April to build the Morwell Solar Farm.

The Latrobe Valley Express is reporting ARP director George Hughes saying the proposal includes a 70 megawatt solar farm consisting of 230,000 solar panels on the 157 hectare parcel of land that is being used for grazing.

Mr Hughes said the project would create 100 jobs during the construction phase and about 20 ongoing maintenance jobs with the expectation of using local labour.

He said the company was interested in hearing from local businesses interested in applying through the tender process that will take place later this year.
