Employment boost: Mr Mitchell said if a successful tender was chosen, the construction and operation of the project would also provide ongoing sustainable skilled employment opportunities.
Wide spectrum of technologies canvassed: “The project tender will choose from technologies ranging from wind, biomass and a range of other technologies to enable Synergy to source more environmentally friendly electricity. Synergy is strongly committed to growing the renewable energy sector,” Mr Mitchell said.
Established renewables welcome too: “While this tender is for new renewable energy developments, we are also open to approaches from existing renewable energy generators for supply outside this tender process.”
