Harvesting the sun’s energy for a better future
We aim to be able to generate over 1 GigaWatt of generation capacity within the next decade, feeding directly into the NEM (National Electricity Market). The Essential Energy powerlines that adjoin towns and localities are ideal potential connection points for WYNERGY solar farms.
In exchange for farmers providing their grazing land to host WYNERGY solar farms, they will receive a royalty payment per KW of power generated. The land needs to be provided to WYNERGY at no cost and the farmers and/or land provider will not be required to pay any costs for the installation, ongoing maintenance or removal of the WYNERGY solar farm infrastructure. WYNERGY solar tracker have a 50 year desing life, and energy profuced will feed into the national grid and be sold wholesale to a (WYNERGY subsidiary) retail energy company.
The ‘royalty for rent’ plan will provide a great incentive for farmers to guarantee future income from their land throughout all climatic conditions.
