SA could be major wind energy supplier: Premier

Updated 38 minutes ago

A study of South Australia’s renewable energy potential says the state could export green power to eastern Australia.

It proposes doubling wind power generation on Eyre Peninsula through private investment.

SA Premier Mike Rann says four energy companies have expressed interest in the idea and SA could meet 30 per cent of the nation’s renewable energy target.

“It’s really us stepping in to fill a gap for the eastern states who’ll find it hard to meet that target,” he said.

“I mean ultimately it’s good the environment. It’s also of course unlocking a resource that’s sustainable for the long term.”
