The solar farm located 20km's south-west of Townsville, is about to become the biggest of its kind in Australia.
It's on track at the moment, with construction getting underway early this year.
The Ross River Solar Farm is a step closer thanks to a $20 million investment by Energy Australia.
The company has agreed to buy 80% of the power generated.
The solar farm in the Upper Ross will make enough power to keep more than 50,000 homes running every year.
