We are an innovative, best practice solar farming company specialising in Agrivoltaics.
We develop, own and operate small Agrivoltaic solar farms from which we wholesale and retail the generated clean energy via connection to the national energy grid.
We aim to build 100’s of Agrivoltaic solar electricity generation assets, feeding power directly into the national grid network
WYNERGY is an innovative, best practice solar farming company specialising in Agrivoltaics.
Premised on our “stock-proof” solar tracking system, we design and build solar farms that maximise agricultural yield and solar energy production while coexisting on the same land. This cohabitation enhances the soil fertility, moisture retention, biomass yield and energy generation (cooler panels)!
We develop, own and operate small Agrivoltaic solar farms from which we wholesale and retail the generated clean energy via connection to the national energy market (NEM); and market the associated certificates.
We also have a commercial division, where we build onsite solar generation assets for Agribusiness and regional operations. We offer a range of finance options for businesses to choose from when deciding to invest in their energy future.
WYNERGY has set itself the ambitious target of connecting 1GW+ of National Grid connected Agrivoltaic Solar Farms by 2030. We will develop our sustainable energy company via ownership and sales of generating assets throughout regional Australia.”
Ben Wynn and Brad Dolahenty are the owners and management team behind WYNERGY. The company was formed to solve the land-use conflict between agriculture and solar power generation.
Ben developed a provisionally patented ‘’stock-proof’’ solar tracking system; Maximising solar energy production while cohabiting and enhancing fertile grazing and farming land.
Our unique approach offers a truly mixed land-use – combining clean-energy and agricultural, known as Agrivoltaics. Building a connection between renewable energy and food+fibre production is a fundamental challenge on fertile farming land, and here at WYNERGY we have developed a business which improves soil and boosts fodder AND energy generation yields. This has been evidenced by 2 studies in Oregon and Arizona (USA), where an increase of 328 % soil moisture resulted in 90 % increased biomass growth (fodder), compared to the control paddocks adjacent.
Additionally, a microclimate created by the biomass below results in lower air temperatures around the solar installations which increase module performance (greater energy generation).
A global study identifies that if just less than 1 % of agricultural land was converted to solar panels, it would be sufficient to fulfil global electricity demand. Agrivoltaics solves two major challenge’s simultaneously, providing the world with clean energy and farm production.
