Yarra Ranges Council 4.5MW Solar Landfill Feasibility

Yarra Ranges Council  4.5MW Solar Landfill Feasibility
  • Project: solar landfill feasibility

This study explores the opportunity to transform unproductive land and closed landfill sites into productive renewable-energy solar farms. 
The council has already installed significant rooftop solar capacity, this represents an opportunity to offset the council power bill and to make significant further emissions reductions. The solar farms also present an opportunity for local community involvement.
Enhar was engaged to undertake this feasibility study with its consortium partner the Australian Energy Foundation who led the community consultation component.

Enhars Scope:


  • Feasibility and Business Case;
  • Solar farm feasibility on landfill 
  • Biochar feasibility
  • Wind energy review
  • Community Consultation
  • Presentations to council Strategic Leadership Team and to Councilllors;

Project Details:

  •  4.5 MW solar farm project scoped up accross mutliple council owned properties
  •  Review of former landfill sites and other non-productive land
  •  Ausnet connections to 22kV network
  •  Multiple community groups with an interest in renweable energy

Project Challenges:

  • Identifying sites within the portfolio which are technically, environmentally and financially feasible 
  • Solar farm design on landfill which preserves the integrity of the cap
  • Consultation with wide range of internal and external stakeholders at multiple hold points
  • Presentation of findings in easy to understand format for wider consumption
