GREEN DEALS: Pacific's solution
climatespectator.com.au, 18 September 2012:
Pacific Hydro has this week launched its long awaited retail offering. The initial launch will be in Victoria and Tasmania and will focus on business customers.
The plan to take on the big utilities in the energy retail sector was publically floated in February after the company failed to reach agreement on a power purchase agreement for its Moree Solar Farm joint venture – although the company had been working on it prior to then. The inability to seal a PPA was symbolic of challenges for independent power producers to get the major utilities to come to the party for clean energy projects.
