The federal government has announced it’ll give two energy corporations, Solar Dawn and Additional Solar Power Farms, a lot more than 3 quarters of a billion dollars. The cash will support to finance the construction of two from the biggest solar power stations in the world.

Solar Dawn will probably be a solar thermal/gas hybrid plant at Chinchilla in Queensland. It really is expected to generate 250 mega watts of electrical power.

The Moree Solar Farm will use traditional photo-voltaic technologies to develop 150 mega watts. Collectively the plants will generate adequate energy for much more than 115,000 Australian households.Each are expected to create hundreds of regional jobs in the construction phase and both are expected to drive analysis and innovation that may see the price of solar power fall low enough to become competitive with wind farming, by the finish with the decade.
