Australian Government Helps Fund 154 MW Solar Power Plant

Canberra, Australia [Associated Press] The Australian government announced Wednesday it will help build the largest solar power plant in the world as part of a new strategy to combat global warming. The government, under fire for refusing to sign the Kyoto Protocol on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, will contribute 75 million Australian dollars (US$57 million; Euro 45 million) to the A$420 million (US$319 million; Euro 254 million) project to build a 154 megawatts solar power plant in Victoria state which will use mirrored panels to concentrate the sun’s rays, Treasurer Peter Costello said. … The two projects are the first to be funded under a A$500 million (US$379 million; Euro 300 million) package announced this week to prevent global warming.
