Discover more about the solar project.
The solar farm supports Shell's integrated energy solutions for industrial and business customers, and demonstrates Shell's commitment to reduce energy emissions. Globally, Shell expects to invest $US1-2 billion on average a year to 2020 on New Energies projects that are a strategic fit, commercially viable and competitive with other opportunities.
Gangarri is a 120 megawatt solar energy project, located in inland Queensland. It will generate solar power from about 400,000 photovoltaic panels that turn sunlight into electricity – enough to run 50,000 homes. And it will reduce emissions by around 300,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per annum.
The solar project has been named “Gangarri” by local traditional owner group, the Iman people, in recognition of the original people who lived there.
