Australian Antarctic Division Director, Mr Kim Ellis, said the system of 105 solar panels, mounted on the northern wall of the 'green store', will provide 30 kilowatts of renewable energy into the power grid -- about 10 per cent of the station's total demand over a year.

"This project will help to build expertise in, and the performance of, solar systems in cold and remote environments," Mr Al Ramahi said.

"It will test the durability and suitability of the solar panels to the strong wind and snow load in Antarctica and help us to determine if it is an efficient way of powering a station."

Must be a long power line to get the power to Australia.

Why would they need to get the power back to Australia, sni?

If you had bothered to read the article you would have learned that this was to provide power to "reduce Casey station's reliance on diesel generators for electricity, cutting fuel costs and emissions, as well as boosting the station's capacity in peak periods."

So, again sni, why would they need to get the power back to Australia?
