The Australian Solar Energy Agency (ASA) has awarded a $4.2 million grant to a private company to develop a solar power project to power the nation’s national grid.
The grant, which was made possible by a $2 million funding grant from the Government, was announced by President Tony Abbott on Monday, and is one of the latest in a series of Australian government support for renewable energy projects.
Mr Abbott, who also announced the first National Energy Guarantee of $20 billion, announced the grant at the National Press Club in Canberra, saying the government would “do everything in our power to support this new sector”.
“This project is a prime example of how Australian solar energy can be used to drive economic growth and deliver good value for our money,” he said.
“It’s a great example of the innovative way we work with our government and with our private sector partners to create jobs and economic growth.”
The Australian government’s commitment to the sector is unparalleled.
It’s a significant milestone in our efforts to drive solar and renewable energy adoption and to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.
“The project will be the second solar energy development by a private Australian company to go ahead.
In August, the Australian Solar Industry Association announced the award of a $1.9 million grant by the Australian Government to Solar Energy Australia to help it develop a “solar plant” on the Gold Coast.
This project will allow the company to install solar energy generating modules on a small number of land-based rooftops in Sydney and Melbourne, to provide a “relatively affordable, safe, secure, reliable, and renewable alternative to existing fossil fuel-fired generation systems”.”
The Solar Energy Authority (SAA) is an independent, non-profit organisation that was established in September 2018. “
Solar Energy Australia has been working closely with government officials in the field of renewable energy to secure funding for a major project that will provide an affordable and reliable, low-carbon alternative to fossil fuel generators.”
The Solar Energy Authority (SAA) is an independent, non-profit organisation that was established in September 2018.
It is tasked with overseeing the development and operation of a solar energy system.
Its role is to ensure the supply of electricity to the grid by providing a range of services, including, but not limited to, the transmission of energy, distribution and storage, and management of energy from the grid.
The SAA is not required to report its funding to the Government.
