About the Project

The Merino Solar Farm at Tirrannaville would produce approximately 450 MW of energy, with an associated Battery Energy Storage System. The solar energy produced would be used to send clean, renewable power into the NSW electricity grid to serve the needs of both the local community, and broader NSW and would assist in the rapid decarbonisation initiative underlaid by the NSW government’s critical Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap.

ITP Development is commited to consistent cooperation with the local community and authorities, ensuring that the project alligns with local needs and values.

Planning Process & Project Links

The Scoping Report has been submitted to the NSW Government Planning Department for assessment. Several key government agencies and relevant councils will undertake an assessment of the report. To view the Scoping Report, as well as the Current Project status, click here.

Once the review is complete, a Secretary’s environmental assessment requirements (SEARs) will be issued to the project, indicating what information needs to be included in the upcoming environmental impact statement (EIS). The EIS phase will provide another opportunity for community and stakeholders to engage and make formal submissions on the proposal.

ITP Development seeks to ensure landholders, stakeholders and the wider community have enough understanding of the proposed project, how it may affect them, the development of the Environmental Impact Assessment, and how they can participate. If landholders aren’t home, we’ll make arrangements to return or meet over the phone or video conference.

Your feedback will help inform our studies as part of the Environmental Impact Assesment process.

Employment Opportunities

At the peak of construction, the project will provide employment and specialist training for up to 350 jobs, with opportunities for local contractors and subcontractors. Construction for a project of this size is anticipated to take up to 18 months.

Where possible Merino Solar Farm will look to recruit from within the region, helping to keep benefits from the project in the local area. We will continue to engage with the community about these opportunities as planning continues.

If you are interested in future employment or contracting opportunities, please email the team at where we will register your details on our database.
