BNRG has developed and operated solar farms worldwide for over a decade. With a 194MW portfolio spanning 61 solar farms, BNRG partners with local developers to harness clean, affordable energy and help support the growing electricity needs of local communities.
BNRG has been developing solar farms in Australia since 2018 but established a partnership with Leeson Group in 2020. Leeson Group has divisions in solar farm development and grid connection engineering services and has been developing solar farms in Australia since 2015. The BNRG Leeson partnership has a pipeline of over 600MW of solar farm projects.
The BNRG Leeson partnership has allowed BNRG to establish an Australian Headquarters, utilising experienced professionals with a wealth of local knowledge. Our Australian Project Manager has over fifteen years of experience working with Australian Farmers to harness the sun's clean energy.
Investing in a solar farm on your land provides an extra income for you and your future generations.
BNRG Leeson will lease your land to host a solar farm for the next 30 years. This means, regular payments and the best part is we will optimise the use of the land for agriculture in and around the solar panels.
You may be eligible for up to a $50,000 payment upfront upon signed agreement with BNRG Leeson before October 2022.
Farmers are becoming increasingly affected by climate change, our environments are unpredictable and it effects cattle and crop drastically. You can protect your business by diversifying your revenue with another investment.
A solar farm wont bother your animals. Panels can even provide shelter for livestock from the harsh Australian climate. Sheep grazing is particularly beneficial for solar farms as it keeps the vegetation from growing over the panels, reducing the maintenance required.
Solar farm trial shows improved fleece on merino sheep grazed under panels and Trial of sheep grazing under solar panels shows early positive results.
Solar Farms allow the land to rest and regenerate, enhancing biodiversity and, at the end of the solar life-cycle, the construction is 100% reversible, meaning the land can be completely restored to its original state.
Panels are approximately 3 meters high and can be easily screen by strategically placed trees or hedging. They've also been designed to absorb light, so there's minimal glare reflected. Solar farms can be virtually invisible from afar .

A small-scale solar farm requires between 20 to 35acres of land in close proximity to a 22kV distribution line. It will generate up to 5MW providing energy for up to 2200 homes in neighbouring towns.
Utility-scale solar farms can average from 200 acres, adjacent to larger transmission lines of 66kV and upwards (we will identify them). These farms can produce even more than 100 MW. Utility-scale solar farms have the largest impact in helping support our transition to renewable energy.
