Canberrans raise $3.07M to build nation's largest community solar farm

ACT investors have pumped $3.07 million into Australia's largest community solar project planned to be built on a Canberra vineyard. 

Deb Cleland, Reuben Layton Thompson, and Jeff Layton
 Thompson are set to invest several thousand in
Australia's largest community-owned solar farm
proposed for this site at Majura.
The project has secured the full capital investment required and plans tabled with the ACT government await final approval. 

Jeff Layton Thompson and his partner Deb Cleland count themselves as "mum and dad investors" who are passionate about making sensible but also ethical choices with their portfolio.

The couple are among 533 backers signed up to put their hard earned into the solar farm that, when built, will generate enough electricity to power 250 Canberra houses.
