About Mannum Solar Farm Stage 2

Stage 2 of the Mannum Solar Farm is the second project in Epic’s growing Mannum Energy Park in the Riverland region of South Australia.

The project was acquired by Epic in August 2022 from its developers Canadian Solar and is now under construction, with operations expected to commence in late 2023.

Stage 2 will operate independently of Epic’s initial Mannum Solar Farm with its own connection to SA Power Network’s distribution network and will use Trina bifacial panels and single-axis tracking system, along with Sungrow inverters.

Orora Limited is the foundational customer for the project under a long-term agreement to help meet the energy and sustainability requirements of its Gawler glass manufacturing facility.

Epic is continuing to explore opportunities to expand the Mannum Energy Park, including through the installation of a battery energy storage system.
