Port Augusta’s choice: clean, fast, affordable renewable energy, or dirty super costly, slow, nuclear

Map Spencer Gulf

Port Augusta now has the opportunity to be part of Australia’s move into 21st Century clean energy. The
DP Energy project for a renewable energy park with wind and solar is up for consideration and public consultation.

What’s the betting that the snake oil salesmen of the nuclear lobby will be exerting pressure against this exciting new venture?

Remember – renewable energy projects can be up and runnning with a year ot two. Compare that with nuclear power’s record of literally decades to have operational.  And even that’s in countries where nuclear power plant is permitted by law – which is not the case in Australia.

Readers of this site may be aware that sevral Submissions to the South Australia Nuclear Fuel Chain Royal Commission have their sights set on Port Augusta. For example, the one on this page, from the Australian Nuclear Association – that persistent lobbyist and publicist for the nuclear industry.
