Sanjeev Gupta’s Simec Zen Energy has chosen to use solar modules from Wuxi Suntech for the 280MW Cultana solar farm it plans to build near Whyalla, along with a 100MW battery, and an associated pumped hydro storage facility. Gupta chooses Suntech for Cultana solar farm and big battery project
This is, of course, contrary to everything that the conservative politicians and the Murdoch media will tell you.

Its also another storage system in roughly the same class as the "Big Battery" around the corner.
Gupta moves forward with Cultana solar project for Whyalla steel works, to be “firmed up” by big battery.
