The Victorian Government has developed the draft Solar Energy Facilities - Design and Development Guidelines to help outline the assessment and development process for large-scale solar energy facilities in Victoria.
The document was informed by a review of guidelines and best practice standards applied interstate and internationally and includes an outline of requirements for planning and assessing new solar energy facility proposals.
The final Guidelines will be developed, through community and industry consultation, with the aim of providing clear and technically robust advice on establishing well located, best practice facilities. Community consultation will begin on the Engage Victoria website in late October 2018 for a period of four months.
The draft guidelines are open for comment until 1 March 2019.
Submissions and requests for further information can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
