Massive Solar Power Plant For Australia

According to the Reuters News Service, “Australia is going to build the world’s largest solar energy plant.”The solar energy plant will cost about 1.4 billion dollars to complete and the project should be in its earliest stages by 2010.

As we all know solar energy and other forms of alternative energy are crucial to the world’s long term survival. Australia wants to invest its money in solar energy and become a leader in the movement to provide clean energy to all citizens of Australia.

This is a very smart move for the government to make because it will help to produce jobs and stimulate the economy at the same time. Australia is known for its abundance of sunshine and now the country’s beautiful sunny days can help Australians lower their energy bills. The project will also put additional people to work and help to spark interest in other alternative energy projects.

For the last few years, many countries have explored finding other ways to produce energy that do not have such a harmful effect on the environment. Global warming is a huge concern throughout the world but few countries have taken charge and actually implemented ways to produce cleaner energy. Australia will be joining the International Renewable Energy Agency and will be attending the global meeting in June and will discuss the project and other ways to help the environment. Hopefully other countries will learn from Australia’s example and will decide to build solar energy plants too.
