Silex’s mega-solar project powers up

It's been a long journey, but Silex subsidiary Solar Systems now has the 1st stage of its Mildura concentrating solar project feeding electricity into the grid. And it is promising costs that will beat wind power.

Silex Systems took an important step yesterday to developing what was billed in 2006 as the second largest solar power project in the world. 

Its 1.5 megawatt demonstration facility in Mildura has now been fully commissioned and is feeding electricity into the grid. This facility is intended to validate the performance and reliability of the technology essential for bank financing.
