Businesses go solar to save millions
Canberra, Australia (SPX) Sep 16, 2014
More than 15,000 Australian businesses have now installed solar power to reduce their energy bills, and there is the potential for tens of thousands more to follow suit if the Renewable Energy Target (RET) is left as legislated, the Clean Energy Council said Monday. Clean Energy Council Acting Chief Executive Kane Thornton said an increasing number of Australian businesses were turning to solar power as a way of slashing their power bills. "Businesses have now invested almost $460 million in ... read more
