Indian Energy major player Adani received the go signal for the construction of its 140-megawatt solar farms in Whyalla. The company has received the approval for the $200 million solar project and will provide 150 jobs during the farm’s construction and with 5 full-time staff once the farm is completed as reported by The Advertiser.

  1. This is exciting news and good on Adani for diversifying into solar. Its the way of the future. Has the company announced who the successful contractors will be to actually build it in South Australia?
