Community solar project to ride out RET threat | The Australian
A planned solar farm in the southern NSW coast town of Tathra, which will spell out the word 'Imagine' in 50m-high letters, is set to push ahead despite concerns about the future of the Renewable Energy Target, ABC Online reports.
According to the news service, organisers of the community project – which is set to provide 50% of the power to the council-owned sewerage treatment works with the savings to subsidise the cost of operating community venues – say fundraising efforts are continuing, with backers Clean Energy for Eternity hoping to raise $80,000 by year's end with the tally already over $50,000.
