Pingala Plans Solar Farms for Sydney

The community energy group Pingala sees a future where solar power will play a vital role in providing Sydney’s energy requirements.  Tom Nokolds, the secretary of Pingala, says the organisation has plans to develop “many solar farms … owned by the community … right here in Sydney”.

Nokolds feels that the Community Energy Congress in Canberra will be an opportunity to share experiences and skills amongst the growing community owned segment of the Australian energy sector.
