July 3 (Renewables Now) - The Aussie unit of German renewables developer Juwi Group on Tuesday unveiled a request for proposals (RfP), looking to buy large-scale utility solar projects in the states of New South Wales and Victoria.
Through its Brisbane-based subsidiary, Juwi Australia, the company is awaiting proposals from developers and landowners until August 3. The goal of the initiative is to expand its photovoltaic (PV) project development business in Australia, the company said in a statement.
“Large-scale solar PV is advancing worldwide. Solar power in Australia today already costs less than most fossil fuel options,” said Cameron Garnsworthy, managing director for Juwi Australia.
