The Jemalong Solar Project is a 50MWac, 60MWdc greenfield project located 35km south west of Forbes, around 150km west of Orange, in NSW. The site is 141ha spread across 2 parcels of land historically used for agricultural production. The site comprises a substation, solar panel array, internal access tracks and corridor for a 66kV powerline.
