Goldman Sachs and BHP Billiton Ltd Supports Solar Project for Australian Banana Plantation

Bloomberg Markets reported that Goldman Sachs and BHP Billiton Ltd are supporters of a remote solar project situated among banana crops in Australia’s tropical northeast.

The project is being developed by Conergy Asia & ME Pte. Ltd. BHP is expanding its interest in solar power in Chile, the United States and Australia, Goldman has been investing in renewable across Asia and is currently arranging a $1 billion energy bond in Japan.
