Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 12 Hansard (22 November) . . Page.. 3793..


Environment—Solar Cities program

(Question No 1717)

Mr Stefaniak asked the Minister for the Environment, Water and Climate Change, upon notice, on 16 October 2007:

(1) Did the ACT make a submission to participate in the Federal Government's Solar Cities program; if not, why not;

(2) If an expression of interest was made, what were the reasons why it was unsuccessful and what deficiencies were identified that need to be addressed.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The Government did not make a submission to the Federal Government's trial Solar Cities initiative. Our decision in 2005 was based on our assessment that the ACT had little chance of success, as our understanding was that preference would be given to proposals that could serve as a major national showcase. Our assessment was that the ACT, at that time, lacked the secondary industry needed to gain benefit from the trial.

(2) The ACT Government did not submit an expression of interest.
