The Huffington,The Huffington Post September 14, 2018 The best solar energy projects in New Zealand, Australia and South Africa.
A project that was conceived in 2009 and commissioned in 2014 has now completed its work, as the country’s Government announced the completion of a total of 6,000 megawatts of solar energy capacity, including an impressive total of 7,000 solar photovoltaic modules.
The New Zealand Government announced that the $12.4 million project, the New Zealand Power Station, is the most ambitious solar energy development in New, Zealand.
The project, in the town of Waikato, was designed by the Solar Power Group, the government-owned company behind the project, which is owned by a group of Australian-based investors.
“This project has taken a huge leap forward in New Kiwis’ understanding of the technology and its potential,” New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said in a statement.
The $12 million project was designed to bring about a total electricity supply from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar, and to generate electricity from hydro, geothermal and tidal power.
“This is the first large-scale solar energy installation in New Zealander’s history,” said New Zealand Prime Minister Bill English, who announced the project’s completion on September 11.
“Solar is the next generation of power generation and this is an incredible achievement.
It will have a massive impact on the energy security of New Zealand.”
The project was funded by a consortium of investors, including the Solar Energy Power Holdings Limited (SEPH) and Sun Power Corporation, which owns the New England Power Station in Australia.
The solar project is one of the largest ever undertaken in New York state.
It consists of 1,200 megawatts (MW) of solar power capacity.
The project’s construction started on March 14, 2017.
The New Zealand Ministry of Energy and Main Roads (MELP) and the Power Networks New Zealand (PNZ) announced the $18 million project on July 20, 2018.
The first wave of construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2021.
Solar power is the third-largest renewable energy source in New England after hydro and geothermal.
New Zealand has been expanding its solar energy generation, and now has a total solar energy output of 6.9 gigawatts (GW), or approximately one-third of the nation’s total power production, according to the New York State Energy Research Laboratory.
The government has also recently completed a large- scale solar project, The New New Zealand Solar Energy Project, which was completed in October 2017.
In New Zealand it is also the world’s largest solar energy exporter, with more than 4 million megawatt-hours (MWh) of installed solar energy generating capacity.
The country exported more than $12 billion worth of solar electricity last year.
