Energy Minister Simon Corbell has proudly unveiled a 30kW solar roof farm in Hume leased by Energy Matters.
He’s hoping other roofs across Canberra can be similarly used:
“There are a number of large buildings and open space across the Territory which could be suitable for a solar installation of this size. It is pleasing to see local businesses making better use of this space by allowing others access to harness renewable energy.
“I applaud both Energy Matters and Ullrich Aluminium, the tenants, for their cooperative approach into achieving this great renewable energy outcome.
The proponents will also have access to the ACT’s Feed-in Tariff scheme.
So much for the economies of large scale production
