Three new power plants for you

By 13 December, 2013 9

Photon Energy are planning to build three mid-sized solar power plants in the ACT, because they realise we’re already living in the future and thatit’s insane that we don’t have solar power plants everywhere.

Sometimes it feels like I’m the only person who payed attention to Sim City 2000.

Only days after launching its Australian unit Photon Energy Generation Australia (PEGA), Photon Energy announces its first three PV projects on the basis of Commercial Hire Purchase Agreements. All three PV plants are located in the ACT and are projected to annually supply 820 MWh of clean electricity to the grid based on a feed-in-tariff with self-consumption option. The projected investment volume is AUD 1.6 million and all three plants are planned to be completed and grid connected by the end of 2014 Q1. Sydney / Amsterdam, 12. 12. 2013 – Photon Energy Investments has signed its first three PV projects on a Commercial Hire Purchase Agreement-basis (CHP). This comes only a few days after it presented its new standardised financing options in Sydney on 9 December. The revolutionary financing models, which can unlock the Australian commercial solar market, have been compared to leasing models and make solar energy accessible to Australian power consumers. All three projects are ground-mounted and have been signed by subsidiary Photon Energy Generation Australia (PEGA). They are located at Mugga Lane and Jerrabomberra.

“Photon Energy Generation Australia is off to a flying start, putting our concept of bringing affordable, clean and safe energy to commercial users on the basis of standardised financing solutions into action”, explains Michael Gartner, Managing Director of Photon Energy Australia. “The response to PEGA’s launch exceeded our expectations and confirmed the substantial demand for high performance commercial solar solutions”, Gartner adds.

“Today’s jump-start of PEGA validates our business model and solidifies our market leadership in the ACT, coming on top of a 290 KWp PV plant in Sydney – the largest in the city – currently under construction by our company. Step by step Photon Energy Investments is becoming market leader in the fast-growing commercial solar market in Australia”, adds Georg Hotar, Chief Executive Officer of Photon Energy Investments NV. “We are very pleased about our progress in leveraging our international experience combined with standardised financing in the world’s sunniest continent”, Hotar concludes.

Solar? Pffft.

Fusion is where it’s at.

That or the Microwave plant. I figure we can set it up so that if the Microwave beam gets misdirected we could just make it so that it blows up Charnwood or something?

There I was, swimming around my usual haunts on the internet, and I saw this little wriggly thing impaled on a sharp shiny thing.

I nearly took the bait, but then I remembered that no-one is daft enough to believe the unfulfilled promises of nuclear energy.

Good trolling attempt though…

Erm

What the hell are you on about?

It’s a reference to Sim City.

despite missing the subtle Sim City reference.

Nuclear Fusion is not the same as Nuclear Fission

And for those that got the classic Maxis game reference, talk to me when we get arcologies.

Fusion is great but who wants to clean up all the deuterium when the monster tears it up on his rampage through the city?

Apologies for not being nerdy enough to care about Sim City.

Despite that, nuclear fusion and fission are both unfulfilled promises.

Precisely.

Fission is a stupendously expensive way to generate power that exists only through massive government subsidy.
Fusion is a stupendously expensive way to generate less power than it gobbles up in the process.

Not happening.

We’ve now got windpower, not just way cheaper than nuclear, but now even cheaper than investing in a new coal-burning plant.
There’s no going back. Even if Abbott’s going to throw $$$ at holding back the tide, he can’t succeed.
