This might be stating the obvious but the ACT Labor Government’s solar plan is receiving plenty of interest from the renewable energy industry, as Simon Corbell announced yesterday. Forty nine separate prequalification proposals were received, showing that the nation’s capital is keen to get started on a large scale solar facility.
“This level of interest from the renewable energy industry is clear evidence that the ACT Labor Government’s plan to make Canberra Australia’s solar capital is working, and is absolutely achievable” Mr Corbell said.
Though the closing date for proposals was the 10 April, twenty seven proposals are already being considered for the fast-track assessment stream. This efficiency, which is usually unheard of in government, shows just how serious ACT Labor is about renewable energy and sustainability for the future.
As Simon Corbell says:
“Solar has to be at the centre of any sustainable energy strategy in the ACT and it is the Labor Government that has a clear, legislated plan, to ensure that we move towards cleaner alternatives to power our city into the future.”
