Cheeditha Solar Farm

Pilbara Solar has entered into an agreement with Cheeditha Group Aboriginal Corporation (GAC) to commence feasibility studies to progress the 100MW Cheeditha Solar Farm.

50% of Pilbara Solar is owned by the Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation (YMAC).

In addition to an ownership percentage, the Cheeditha Solar Farm will deliver lease payments to Cheeditha GAC for the life of the project, and job and training opportunities throughout construction and operations, and the maintenance phases via the lead EPC contractor.

Power generated from the solar farm may be sold to the grid and/or to nearby industry to generate income for the community.

An early estimate of the project timeline is around 3-5 years from the commencement of the development phase through to the roll-out of electricity.

The Cheeditha Aboriginal community is self-managed and operates independently of Government.

The project will be located 250 metres north of the Jinparinya community, 35km from Karratha in Western Australia.
