Lodestone’s solar farms will increase New Zealand’s solar production by eight times and act as one diversified power plant, reliably feeding electricity into local networks.
The farms are more than just a power station – they have been designed to support continued agricultural activities around the solar infrastructure.
This agrivoltaic approach allows the land to continue to be productive, with over 85% of baseline farming yield expected when the solar farm is operational.
With only the tracking system moving, solar farms have little or no audible impact on neighbours and will have a negligible impact on the surrounding environment. Solar energy production uses no water, creates no pollution, makes virtually no noise and releases zero emissions.
