May 8, 2018

Winton Solar Farm has received Development Approval from the Benalla Rural City Council.  This approval allows FRV to proceed to detailed design – the process of defining exactly how the Winton Solar Farm Project will be built within its approved development parameters.

Several development conditions have been included in the Development Approval.  These must be met during construction and operation of the facility.
