Graeme Hanigan's talks about how Australia led the world with this commercial solar power station at White Cliffs in NSW

Chance led Graeme Hanigan (pictured) and his wife Tina to what was the world's first solar powered commercial operation at White Cliffs in far western New South Wales.
Since stumbling across the then mothballed solar power station, Graeme has worked with others to ensure that this vital piece of Australia's history and heritage is being preserved.
Graeme talked with Climate Conversations about "the project" and why he is interested this seemingly remote solar power station after coming back to shore after another day as volunteer at Shepparton's Victoria Park Lake with Sailabilty.
Graeme has not allowed the importance of the remarkable solar farm go unnoticed and the town's youth, and it hasn't as the local school has made a short film entitled "Blackout" that explores what has been happening at White Cliffs.
