Cambridge JMD Australia Proposes   
AUD650 million Solar Farm for North Queensland

Cambridge JMD Australia has lodged a development application with the Burdekin Council to establish a 400 megawatt (MW) solar farm in North Queensland. The application proposes a $650 million investment, in collaboration with North Queensland landholder Davco Farming to construct the Cambridge Solar Farm in the green energy precinct in Upper Haughton, approximately 80km South of Townsville.


Cambridge JMD Australia Director Michael Dwyer said the Burdekin site was selected for its optimal solar capacity and convenient access to existing electricity transmission networks. “We recognize Australia’s rising demand for energy and we are eager to assist with clean electricity from the Cambridge Solar Farm” he said.


“On a national scale, and upon full development, the Cambridge Solar project is anticipated to generate approximately 400 jobs. It will not only support Australia’s carbon emissions target but this solar project will also bring crucial investment, job opportunities, and economic advantages to the North Queensland communities” he added.
