Projects impending


Please distribute to your network those sections which may be relevant. Regards, Bob King

There is a dam of perhaps 1,000 projects waiting to burst upon us, now that fast track processing is coming in, and as soon as the Capacity Investment Scheme, CIS, payments are sorted out, and if the investment case still holds up in the face of cannibalisation from rooftop solar and increased likelihood of nuclear.

First, from Cairns News

  1. 3. Steven Nowakowski, 8/4/24, list of North Queensland renewables which he  found by searching “code accessible” at local council.”State Code 23″ at State, EPBC at Federal levels, and on proponent  websites such as Squadron, Neoen, DP Energy, Tag Energy, Project D, etc

SEVEN

EPBC announce upgrades to these projects, but it is very hard to discern what the changes are.

Tarong West Wind Farm

North East Wind

Liverpool Range Wind Farm

Central-West Orana REZ

Gundary Solar Farm

Capricornia Energy Hub

EIGHT

This may shift over time because solar jobs are largely temporary jobs in the installation sector, but as it currently stands, the energy return on each person employed is the lowest for oil-peaking plants, solar, and wind generation.

Chalumbin – Too sacred to desecrateThe Chalumbin (Wooroora Station Wind Farm) does not have consent. Now is the time for Tanya Plibersek to use her powers to knock it out.

Look at all that infrastraucture, unguarded, unsecured, and unwanted.
I hope they have good insurance on it because the Greens are not happy about their birds being killed by the ecocrucifixes.
