The Canberra Times has a piece in which Technical Real Estate tries to put the frighteners up the Greens and all opponents of their planned data centre / power station.
It seems they’re frustrated from doing business in a functional democracy and have determined that the only viable place for their plans is close the homes in Tuggeranong.
As a long time watcher of these things there’s a lot here that makes little sense. Does some mighty factional warlord own the land? Why else is this particular parcel of land so essential to the process. Surely the co-generation capacity reduces the need to be near residential areas?
UPDATED: The Greens’ Amanda Bresnan is quite reasonably asking what the game is here:
- ‘”We don’t understand why TRE are prepared to go overseas or interstate, but they are not prepared to move down the road.”
“The Greens are very confident that appropriate sites for this or future data centre projects could be found in the ACT” Ms Bresnan said.’
