Clare Solar Farm

In May 2017, the Lighthouse Solar Fund acquired a 50% equity interest in the 128MWp Clare Solar Farm from Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV), a leading developer of solar projects, based in Madrid, Spain. Developed by FRV, the Clare Solar Farm is located around 35 km south-west of Ayr in Northern Queensland.


Origin Energy has entered into a long-term contract to purchase 100% of the electricity output and large-scale renewable energy certificates (LGCs) generated by the project, which will utilise single-axis tracking mounts to optimise the generation at the site.  The project is currently under construction and is scheduled to commence operations in late 2017.


The project will create up to 200 jobs during construction and when completed will generate enough electricity to power approximately 42,000 Queensland homes, abating nearly 200,000 tonnes of CO2e emissions annually.

Rooftop Solar

Roof-mounted Solar Systems generate electricity at the point of consumption (e.g. on a Residential or Commercial roof), which is used directly by the household or business. Electricity produced that is not consumed is either stored in a battery or fed back into the grid.
