Lambruk Solar Farm

Detailed Planning
Lambruk Solar Farm

Lambruk Solar Farm is a development proposed by Venn Energy for a 500 megwatt solar farm with 300 megawatt (MW) / 1,200 megawatt-hour (MWh) battery energy storage system and associated infrastructure.

The development would be located in Loomberah, approximately 15 kilometres south of Tamworth, NSW and 30 kilometres south of the New England Renewable Energy Zone.

Two existing 330 kilovolt (kV) transmission lines operated by Transgrid pass through the project area, and the project would develop onsite connections.

The proposed project would include: 

  • up to 850,000 solar PV modules
  • up to 178 solar inverters
  • a battery energy storage system (BESS) or distributed BESS throughout the solar array with a capacity of up to 300 MW / 1,200 MWh
  • onsite switchyard connected to the existing 330 kV overhead lines that currently traverse the site
  • 330/33 kV substation, and
  • associated infrastructure including temporary facilities such as access roads and permanent facilities such as site offices.
