Australian utility signs power purchase agreement with large solar-plus-storage project

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:A 200MW South Australia solar project that proposes to add “one of the largest” batteries in the Southern Hemisphere should be under construction by Christmas, after its developers snared a power purchase agreement with major utility, Alinta Energy.The deal, announced on Thursday, locks in finance for the $480 million Solar River Project, which is being developed by Jason May and Richard Winter near Robertstown, in South Australia’s mid-north.May, who says this moment has been two years in the making, would not disclose the financial details of the 15-year PPA, but told Renew Economy that the deal with Hong Kong-owned Alinta was for 75 per cent of the solar farm’s output, making the project “very bankable.”Solar River, which May says has been in the conceptual phase for a good deal longer than two years, is a substantial project, integrating 200MW of PV and a 100MW/300MWh battery under one generation license.Exactly who is supplying the battery is not being disclosed yet, either, but May does say it will come from one of the largest companies in the world, and use “cutting edge,” never before deployed technology.May says the energy storage system, billed in the joint press release as “one of the largest batteries in the Southern Hemisphere” will have a three-hour charge cycle, and will be cycling one to two times a day, depending on the needs of the network.More: Alinta signs up for huge solar and battery project in South Australia Australian utility signs power purchase agreement with large solar-plus-storage projectlast_img read more

Watch: Jason Quigley talks loneliness, life, social media and Conor McGregor in TV appearance

first_imgJason Quigley showed this morning just why his army of supporters is growing by the week. A week after moving to 14-0 as a professional, the Ballybofey boxer was on SaturdayAM on TV3 this morning to reflect on his latest win and talk about his career.Quigley delved a little deeper, though, and, among other things, spoke about the mental challenges, the issue of social media ‘popularity’ and Conor McGregor’s latest headline-making escapade in New York. Quigley recently upped sticks from his Los Angeles base to move to Sheffield, where he now trains under Dominic Ingle.“A lot of people put there will look at social media and at pictures of me winning fights in all these places and it looks amazing and they think it’s such great life,” Quigley, who beat Daniel Rosario last Saturday in Boston, said.“But the next day, maybe I was sitting in the apartment on my own crying, missing family, missing home. It’s not all glamorous, sunshine and rainbows.”Quigley’s comments will certainly strike a cord and the Irish middleweight highlighted how social media has become a contest in popularity. To that end, Quigley said that McGregor’s actions in New York this week were ‘a disgrace’.He said: “The amount of young children that look up to that man; whatever he touches, whatever he looks like or smells like, the young kids want to be that. I think it’s a disgrace what he’s done. Kids will look at this and think it’s cool and that’s the way to act.”Watch: Jason Quigley talks loneliness, life, social media and Conor McGregor in TV appearance was last modified: April 7th, 2018 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Conor McGregorDaniel RosarioJason QuigleyTV3last_img read more
