McCain Foods Ballarat

McCain Foods Ballarat is a Potato Processing facility with a large 24 Hour electrical and thermal load.

This Solar PV installation is the first stage of a plan to supply 39% of the site load and supply with Cogeneration CHP Plant, supplied with Biogas from an onsite anaerobic digester.

Globally, McCain Foods is committed to reducing our CO2 emissions by 50 per cent by 2030, ceasing any reliance on coal by 2025, and having 100 per cent of our plants powered by renewable electricity by 2030.



Solar Bay, part of Energy Bay builds the asset, and the client agrees to buy back energy at a fixed price, over a set period.
