4ZZZ launched its glorious tradition of counting down listeners' 100 favourite songs on New Year's Day 1977. More than 10 years later, 2JJJ in Sydney (which employed many ex-Zed staff) began conducting its own Hot 100. Because 4ZZZ held the rights to the name Hot 100, there was a little bit of legal biffo when TripleJ became a national broadcaster, so they changed the name of their survey to the "Hottest 100".
Approval granted for solar electricity farm in Darling Downs
Builder Solar Choice is planning the construction of the farm, which they say could potentially generate up to two gigawatts of electricity once completed.
Managing director Angus Gemmell said it is exciting news but there is a lot of work left to do for the project.
He said a power purchase agreement would have to be reached once studies with Powerlink were completed, with options of selling electricity onto the grid directly or having the sale completed by an electricity provider.
