I would like to draw Mr Bray’s attention to the remarks recently made by Sanjeev Gupta, owner of the Whyalla Steel Works as reported by the ABC: “We think, eventually, renewable power is cheaper than fossil fuel and we want to participate in that transition.”
The reality is that Zen Energy, of which Mr Gupta has controlling interests, is planning to invest $700million in Whyalla for the generation of solar, battery storage and pumped hydro energy.
I would say Mr Gupta, like Premier Jay Weatherill, is on the right track, in fact visionary.
They are to be applauded; jobs, jobs, jobs, and ultimately lower power prices – without the pollution!
