Solar Farm Boosts Economy

THE Rubgy Run solar farm, southwest of Moranbah, has been switched on and is being praised for providing jobs to locals, being part of a vital network of projects worth "hundreds of millions of dollars” in the Isaac region, as well as demonstrating the region's industry diversity.

An Adani Australia spokesperson said this week that during construction of the solar farm, contractors were used from Clermont, Chinchilla, Bowen and Townsville, "ensuring the benefits of the Rugby Run investment were focused on regional Queensland”.

"By working closely with all parts of the energy sector, including renewables, developers such as Adani Renewables Australia, the Isaac region has secured projects worth hundreds of millions of dollars that directly inject jobs and economic benefits into the local economy,” the spokesperson said.
