The Australian Government has given approval for a combined wind and solar park in Southern Australia.

DP Energy’s Port Augusta Renewable Energy Park will produce around 1,000GWh of clean energy each year, sufficient to power approximately 200,000 households and save 470,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. The cost of building the project will be AU$680 million (£395.5m) and will create 250 jobs during construction. The park will have 59 wind turbines and about 400 hectares of solar panels, generating a total capacity of 375MW. It will make an important contribution to South Australia’s low carbon investment objective of AU$10 billion (£5.82bn) by 2025.
