‘With the finish line now firmly in sight for the Port Augusta walkers, the proposal to build Australia’s first solar thermal plant in Port Augusta is getting closer than ever,’ according to Big Solar’s Andrew Bray.
‘South Australian energy minister, Tom Koutsantonis, recently drove out to visit the walkers.
‘He has since asked to meet with the Repower Port Augusta alliance directly after the rally on Monday to work through the options for moving the solar-thermal proposal forward,’ he said yesterday.
‘This Sunday, when the walkers arrive in Adelaide for a 2000-strong rally outside South Australian parliament, we will be walking in SOLARdarity with them in 18 other towns and suburbs around the country, including a salute to the sun at Anthony Albanese’s office in Newtown, a live broadcast from Broome’s Cable Beach webcam and even a skiing trip to the top of Mount Kosciuszko!’
Not to be left out, Byron Bay has organised a Big Solar gathering for Sunday too. Meet at 11am, at The Pass car park, Brook Drive, Cape Byron.
