Cobbora Solar Farm

The 700 megawatt Cobbora Solar Farm will generate enough clean renewable energy to power 160,000 homes. It also includes a 200MW/200MWh battery energy storage system that can supply energy on demand, such as peak periods or when the sun isn’t shining.

The project is situated in the NSW Central West Orana Renewable Energy Zone and intends to connect into its new transmission lines.

Marble Energy has commenced planning activities and is currently preparing the necessary reports to complement a planning application to the NSW Government.

We intend to commence construction in 2025, feeding electricity into the network by 2028.

Project Facts

The solar farm will be developed across a 2,700 hectare site of mostly cleared grazing land about six kilometres from the small township of Cobbora and 20 kilometres south-west of Dunedoo.

It is located on the site of the Cobbora Coal Mine project, which was proposed for the area in 2014 but did not proceed.

The site’s low undulating landscape makes it ideal for a solar farm development. It is free from flooding and ecological constraints and does not include any Biophysical Strategic Agricultural Land (BSAL).

It is located across Warrumbungle Shire Council and Dubbo Regional Council local government areas.
