Each solar farm on this map is colour coded by current output in proportion to registered capacity (i.e. capacity factor). Larger icons represent larger registered capacities: large >250MW; medium > 100MW; small ≤ 100MW.

Today's Solar Energy Production

As of August 2014 there are no solar farms reporting data through the AEMO SCADA data set. This may change with the ongoing construction of the Capital East and Royalla solar farms.

The default, capacity factor graph shows the output as a percentage of registered capacity. Alternatively, you may view the actual output in megawatts.

Solar farms may be included or excluded from the graphs by toggling the check boxes. The total will update accordingly.
