A new solar farm able to generate enough energy for 12,000 households has just come online in the south of France.
The Les Mées solar farm in the department of Alpes-de- Haute-Provence features six Siemens photovoltaic (PV) power plants with a combined peak output of 31 megawatts. The project developer is Delta Solar, a subsidiary of Eco Delta Développement (EDD).
Oh great – thanks Ted!!!!!!!!!!
THE Baillieu government has quietly cut access for most households to a second incentive to install new rooftop solar panels.
It follows the decision last month to slash the state’s ”premium” feed-in tariff paid by retailers for rooftop solar from 60¢ to 25¢ a kilowatt for power fed into the grid.
Under the changes, the government will also restrict access to the state’s ”standard” feed-in tariff – in place since 2004 – for new solar panel systems generating less than five kilowatts, the lion’s share of installations.Read more: http://www.theage.com.au/environment/energy-smart/tariff-cuts-eclipse-household-solar-panel-benefits-20111016-1lrlt.html#ixzz1azJ8pp1f
Electricity generated by solar photovoltaics (PV) could cost about the same as regular grid-based electricity in some parts of Europe by 2013, according to a new study by the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA).
Furthermore, by 2020, solar PV electricity will have reached grid parity across Europe, the study finds.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could say the same about Australia?!
