Australia's 400MW of Solar Plants to Nearly Double Generating Capacity @SustainableInc
Warren reported before on plans to build large-scale solar thermal plants in Australia , but ESI-Africa reports that the push for centralized, large-scale solar power may finally be really taking off down under. As part of a major push to produce 1000MW of power from solar, the Government announced that it had selected two of the four projects expected to reach this goal. Given that Australia had an estimated total of 500MW of solar generating capacity at the end of 2010, these projects look set to almost double the country's production by themselves.
