Joshua Robertson (The Guardian, 2.3.15) writes:
‘A sea of glass panels, to be located at Bulli Creek on Queensland’s Darling Downs, could be capable of cranking out two gigawatts of power within eight years. That is equivalent to one fifth of the current total renewable energy target for the entire country in a single power station. It is also more power than any coal fired station in Queensland can currently muster.
‘“Excellent sunlight hours” are just one reason why Bulli Creek is ideal for a large-scale solar farm, proponent Angus Gemmell says.
‘It is also grazing land – meaning no prime cropping land need be sacrificed – and is flat, treeless and has no neighbours.’
