Sun farms

Are sun farms the next big thing in power generation?

This one between Vejer de la Frontera and Cadiz covers about 10 hectares.

The Scientific American asks is the sun setting on solar power in Spain

It says that waning subsidies and other markets might entice developers to move elsewhere. 

Could it work in New Zealand and if so, would development on this scale attract the opposition wind power has through the resource consent process?

    Let’s not have subsidies please. Your source article shows precisely why they are a disaster.

    No they won’t be any good for NZ becuase they take up too much land. Just right for Aussie though.

    The only rational source of high volume ‘clean’ electricity for NZ is nuclear power. The sooner we wake up the better.
