The District Council of Karoonda-East Murray says it will look into the possibility of a floating solar power plant at Karoonda in South Australia’s Murray-Mallee region. Council CEO Peter Smithson said the floating solar plant would provide power for the waste management pump station next to the stormwater dam.

A similar plant is already operating at Jamestown in the state’s mid-north.  Mr Smithson said the council had committed to undertake further due diligence about the green power opportunity.
