NewNet is reporting Infigen Energy and Suntech Australia have been given the go-ahead to construct a AUD$300m ($297m) installation in New South Wales. I'm familiar with Suntech Australia and need to find out how it is tied to China's Suntech. I know Shi Zhengrong did most of his PhD research in Australia
The local New South Wales government has reportedly approved a plan to build a 100MW solar development, which will be the first constructed in the state. The project will receive funding under the Australian federal government’s Solar Flagships scheme.
In November, the two companies filed documents with the Australian government to develop a number of solar farms in New South Wales.
The Solar Flagships program is part of the Australian government’s A$4.5bn Clean Energy Initiative, which was originally announced in the May 2009 budget.
