Royalla Solar Farm opens, but where's Solar Flagships?

The 20 MW Royalla solar farm opens today. It happened via the ACT's renewables auction process after just 2½ years. Meanwhile, the federal government's solar farm program is yet to deliver an electron to the grid – after five years. What's the lesson here?

The 20 megawatt (AC) Royalla Solar Farm to the south of Canberra will open today while, elsewhere in the ACT, Zhenfa’s 13MW Solar Farm in  Mugga Lane is on the verge of securing planning approval.
