Prime Minister Julia Gillard opens CSIRO Solar Field 2

Our new solar field was officially opened this morning by Prime Minister Julia Gillard. Also in attendance were Minister for Resources and Energy Martin Ferguson, Member for Newcastle Sharon Grierson, and Member for Shortland Jill Hall.

Our visitors braved the crisp winter air to climb the tower and enjoy the view, and after they’d returned our engineers started up the field to give them an on-sun demonstration.

I’ll be posting photos and a full report on Monday – stay tuned.
