CLIMATE CHANGE — AMELIORATION MEASURES
Hon TIM CLIFFORD
to the Minister for Regional Development:
I refer to the statement that Hon Stephen Dawson made during the motion on climate change and amelioration measures that was debated on Wednesday, 21 June when he said that the government has committed to undertaking a feasibility study into a major solar project in the goldfields.
(1) Has the feasibility study commenced?
(2) If yes to (1), what is the projected completion date?
(3) If no to (1), when will the study commence, and when will it be completed?
Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN
I thank the honourable member for his question and, indeed, his interest in this important topic.
(1)–(3) We have asked the Goldfields–Esperance Development Commission to look at how we might best proceed with this, stressing the need for industry engagement in designing a way forward. The GEDC has had discussions with Western Power and several industry interest groups. The scope of the feasibility study is currently being worked out and we hope it will be completed in the next four months.
