Sun Metals Solar Farm

Our group’s journey in renewable energy commenced in 2018 when Sun Metals invested $200 million to build the Sun Metals Solar Farm. The solar farm services the refinery’s heavy electricity requirements and provides around 25% of its electricity needs. 

The solar farm includes approximately 1.26 million solar PV modules which convert the collected DC power through 52 large scale outdoor inverters to AC power, which is utilised by the refinery and electricity network.
