A development application has been lodged for a Solar Power Facility, 189 Whitwood Road, New Chum, Ipswich.
Designed by LMS Energy, the proposal is for a Major Utility (Solar Power Facility) to be co-located with an existing renewable energy facility (landfill gas) on the same property. The generated energy is to be exported for local distribution into the grid network.
The proposal seeks an approximately 205m by 505m layout on a central vacant part of the subject site. The solar panels will be arranged in a uniform formation across twelve (12) groups (solar power arrays) over the 4.4 ha site. Vehicle access is retained to Whitwood Road.
The planners at Murray and Associates state, “the solar power facility is inherently a passive use, which will absorb energy from sunlight during daytime hours and converting it to energy to be immediately exported to the local distribution grid network. With regard to noise considerations, the subject site is not located near any residential or otherwise sensitive uses and the ‘humming’ of the solar inverters will only be audible to those working in their immediate vicinity. As is evident, there will be no impact in regard to noise outside of daylight hours”.
