Photovoltaic cells produce electricity directly from sunlight

A big new Solar power station in Victoria is planned.

A company called Solar Systems has announced a large 154 MW photovoltaic (PV) solar power station for north-western Victoria. The A$420 million project will provide enough electricity for more than 45,000 homes. It will create jobs and will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions.[1]

Full completion is expected in 2013, with the first stage to be finished by 2010.[2]

Four smaller solar power stations have already been built in central Australia.[3]
