Australia's Largest Community Solar Project Proposed

The ACT government has formally called for proposals for a community solar scheme that would be the biggest community project in Australia.
The ACT Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development Simon Corbell said the government wants to build a community solar projects totaling 1MW – allowing ownership by people, including those who could not afford their own stand alone system, or who lived in apartments or rental accommodation.
The ACT government is offering a feed in tariff of up to 20c/kWh for the installations, higher than any other tariff currently available in Australia. The initiative is part of the territory’s plan to source 90 per cent of its renewable energy target by 2020.
