Australia Approves 21 New Wind Power Projects


The Australian government has approved 21 new wind power projects in the country, 13 already in operation. Once completed, these wind farms will triple the capacity from 428 megawatts to 1554 megawatts of power within next two years. The green energy produced from these wind farms will save tens of millions of tonnes of greenhouse gases. The government is planning to pass renewable energy target legislation, which will include 20% of total electricity to be renewable by 2020.
