LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Sir – I welcome the proposed investment of Australian billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes into the $25bn SunCable Project.
He has indicated he will make a funding announcement by the end of the year.
The proposed Australia-Singapore Power Link (ASPL) is a 10 gigawatt solar farm and a 20 to 30 gigawatt hour storage facility near Tennant Creek.
ASPL will supply loads in the Darwin and Singapore markets via a high voltage direct current transmission.
This is the largest solar farm under development in the world, and it will be built right here in the Territory.
The Tennant Creek region has one of the highest solar irradiance resources on the planet, making it a perfect location for the proposed solar farm.
The project will seek to supply long term, competitive, stably priced renewable electricity to the Darwin and Singapore markets.
Mr Cannon-Brookes knows the Territory is a great place to invest and is backing our vision for this project.
We have the guaranteed cloud free days, the land and a Government with the vision, plan and will to make it happen.
Chief Minister Michael Gunner
