The Griffith Solar Farm is a project consisting of 100 hectares of ground mounted solar panels approximately 7km south-east of Griffith in New South Wales. The farm generates approximately 76 000 megawatt hours (MWh) of clean, renewable electricity for the national power grid each year, a major contribution to Australia’s greenhouse gas reductions.
