The Whyalla Solar Farm is a landmark utility-scale solar power plant project for the Upper Spencer Gulf region of South Australia. As the location sees up to 8 hours a day of sunshine, it was considered the perfect choice for a PV utility-scale solar power plant.

SSE saw the potential and worked with key partners to get the project off the ground.

Whyalla City Council

Whyalla City Council

The Whyalla City Council headed by Mayor Lyn Breuer is highly supportive of the project. The arrival of the Whyalla Solar Farm means the introduction of a new industry to the area and one which is sustainable. The project will hire local contractors, employ local people and where possible use local facilities. The Mayor also sees this as a great future opportunity for tourism, where Whyalla can be known as ‘the solar capital’.
