Proposed area of Queensland solar farm.

Proposed area of Queensland solar farm.

I am always impressed by individuals who use their brains to create initiatives that serve a greater purpose, rather than for individual interests. Angus Gemmell has this drive and he has set out to build Australia’s (and possibly, the world’s) largest solar farm in Queensland.

Sure, Angus has had a lot of success in his law career and has many high-powered connections, but he’s not a genius. He simply found a great plot of land for a solar farm and is putting his brain power to good use, turning this land into something positively productive.

“Excellent sunlight hours” are just one reason why Bulli Creek is ideal for a large-scale solar farm, Gemmell says.

It is also grazing land – meaning no prime cropping land need be sacrificed – and is flat, treeless and has no neighbours. 

Crucially, Bulli Creek is close to a major transmission node in the national electricity grid, a 330 kilovolt substation, perfectly located to send power around the country.

Very cool initiative and I hope that many more leaders step up to the plate in the coming decade! Check out the linked article below for more details.
