About the Asset
The Maxwell Solar Farm is an approved 25 - Megawatt (MW) solar farm to be located on rehabilitated land within the Maxwell Infrastructure site south of Muswellbrook.
The solar farm will provide 50 jobs for the local area during construction and two jobs during operation.The solar farm would generate more than 60 Gigawatt hours annually, providing enough energy to power about around 10,000 local homes.
Given the recent announcement of the NSW state Government of a Renewable Energy Zone (REZ) in the Upper Hunter Valley, Malabar is currently assessing options to increase renewable generation.
The solar farm is an example of Malabar’s commitment to the local area and the transition to a renewable energy economy.
