The 12.2MW Melbourne airport solar farm is currently under construction on land nearby to the airport, allowing the project to operate as a ‘behind-the-meter’ installation, supplying power directly to the airport’s terminals.
- Deliver around 17GWh of electricity each year, enough to meet around 15 per cent of the airport’s total electricity consumption.
- Large enough to power all four of Melbourne airport’s passenger terminals at full output.
