Soaring power prices have prompted Newcrest Mining to consider installing a solar farm at its Cadia mine in New South Wales. CEO Sandeep Biswas says it has been to both California and Israel to see what technology is available at the moment. He says that given Cadia is expected to be operational for some years, installing a solar farm is a viable option. He notes that there are currently solar farms capable of generating 600 megawatts, whereas Cadia would only require one that produces 150 megawatts.
