Carnegie to build $20m solar power station

Renewable-focused Carnegie Clean Energy has announced it is developing a $20 million, 10-megawatt solar power station in Northam, which it says will generate enough electricity to power 4,000 homes for 25 years.

Fremantle-based Carnegie said the joint venture project between its recently acquired subsidiary Energy Made Clean and Lendlease was for the construction of 34,000 solar panels on 25 hectares of land, which would deliver 24,000MW hours of electricity per year.

The project is expected to cost between $15 million and $20 million, with work to begin mid-year and be completed by the end of 2017.

Renewable energy projects should be obligated to provide significant backup supply either batteries or something else instead of hanging off the coat-tails of fossil fuel generators. I hope the WA govt doesn't go down the same path as SA and mindlessly replace reliable coal fired generators with intermittent and unreliable power sources.
