Official estimates of the risk of an electricity shortfall this summer are exaggerated because much more solar energy - as much as six times current large-scale capacity - is ready to be built, the Australian Solar Council says.

Completed large-scale plants total 310.8 megawatts,which will be dwarfed by the 2054 MW of large-scale solar photovoltaics (PV) plants that have secured finance and/or a power purchase agreement, the council says.
