Dubbo has a history of saying yes to new things.
In the 1970s, after a nearby town turned down the offer of a new zoo (fearing escaped lions would kill livestock) Dubbo jumped at the chance. Decades on they’ve said yes again to two new large scale solar farms - one in nearby Narromine and the other just out of the city.
The new solar farms will be in good company. Dubbo is one of the top three towns or cities in New South Wales when it comes to rooftop solar adoption. And, like our trip to Griffith, Parkes and Nyngan, it’s easy to see why. Dubbo is sunny all the time.
Special guests on this episode are comedian Dave O’Neil and NSW Renewable Energy Advocate Amy Kean.

Next episode is the final in our trip. We’re headed to WA where a solar farm there will complement the existing wind farm out the back.
