My blog is all about the famous outback Australian National Heritage Listed City named Broken Hill, located in the state of New South Wales. I first visited #BrokenHill in 2002 and have returned many times since then. ilovebrokenhill.com will help you discover what's great about this historic mining city, where in the mid 1880's the line of lode, a rich ore body of silver, lead and zinc was found. You will find stories about anything related to Broken Hill.

More good solar news in the Broken Hill region

It was great to read that the solar plant on the edge of Silverton, in the Broken Hill region was starting to take shape.

The plant, a joint initiative between AGL, First Solar and the Australian Government, will reportedly cost approximately $150 million.

ABC Broken Hill reported the story earlier this month. Here's the link to the article by Alexandra Back - http://www.abc.net.au/local/photos/2015/05/08/4232122.htm

Alexandra put it very well by describing that Broken Hill is transitioning from a Silver City to a Solar City.

Here's a Tweet that includes an image from the story 
could add that Broken Hill's also transitioning more and more to a tourism city, what with the National Heritage City Listing in January this year. But that's another story, and there is still much to made of that significant development.

Anyhow, if you're interested in the solar journey (I first wrote about the proposal in November 2012), I think there's still plenty of room for further developments in that space as well, so stay tuned.

Cheers, Jane Deany
