SOLAR POWER FOR ADELAIDE SHOWGROUNDS

I subscribe to the free e newsletter called Eco eNews. Here is a snippet from the May edition today...

TWO leading Australian companies will join forces and build Australia’s largest solar power system at the Adelaide Showgrounds.
Australia’s largest solar photovoltaic power system will be designed and installed by an alliance partnership between National building and engineering company, Built Environs and Solar Shop Australia, a National provider of grid connect solar systems.

The 1MegaWatt (MW) rooftop solar system will be installed over six separate buildings at the Adelaide Showgrounds and is approximately two and a half times the size of the Singleton Solar Power Station in NSW, which surprisingly has remained Australia’s largest solar system for the last 11 years.
Once completed, the solar system is expected to produce approximately 1435 MWh of electricity annually which is enough energy to power over 230 households.
In addition it will prevent the release of 1500 tonnes of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere annually and is the equivalent of taking 450 cars off Australian roads......
