Lightsource bp, a global leader in the development and management of solar energy projects, and 50:50 JV with bp, has‎ ‎secured planning approval for upscaling plans for the Wellington North solar project, which was ‎acquired from AGL last year. The 400MWdc site is adjacent to Lightsource bp’s near-complete ‎‎200MWdc Wellington solar farm. Once operational, the 600MWdc hub could become the state’s ‎largest renewable energy power hub.

Lightsource bp’s Wellington North solar farm will use 1.2 million ‎bifacial solar panels – contributing to NSW’s ambition to increase its share of renewable energy to ‎more than 60% by 2030 while also playing a critical role in helping bp meet its net zero ‎ambitions.‎


Despite the global challenges of COVID-19, solar power continues to demonstrate its resilience and ‎reliability. The solar farm will provide direct economic stimulus in Wellington by creating 400 local ‎employment opportunities during construction.‎
