    • Whyalla plans to meet South Australia's energy needs five times over

  • British Billionaire Sanjeev Gupta made headlines across the country (and around the world) when he bought the troubled steel mill Whyalla and turn it into a renewable energy super power. But no one guessed he’d go this far!

    Gupta recently unveiled a new plan for large and small-scale solar and battery farms that will make his company one of the largest energy providers in the nation. In two to three years!

    Their growth plans now include:

    • re-tooling the steelworks to make “special steel” powered entirely by renewable energy
    • building an even bigger storage battery than the Tesla one nearby, already the world’s biggest
    • providing over 10 gigawatts of renewable power (SA uses about 1.65 gigawatts a year)

    That’s a lot of new investment, jobs, and hope for renewables revitalizing and repowering our economy.
