Port Augusta solar tower with heat storage under threat

Plans for the Port Augusta solar tower with heat storage are under threat.  It would become the first large-scale solar tower with heat storage in Australia.  The local community is pushing for this to replace its ageing, highly polluting brown coal generators. …  Alinta says solar thermal is still way too expensive – even though projects overseas are building this technology at the price Alinta says is needed.
