Construction starts on Canberra solar farm

Category: Capital Radio News

Today marks the first day of construction for a new community-owned solar farm in the ACT, which will be the largest of its kind in Australia.

The farm in Majura Valley will be co-owned by around 500 locals and will provide enough power to support about 250 homes in Canberra.

Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability Shane Rattenbury says putting community members in control of solar power will allow more Canberrans to reap the rewards of solar energy.
