They should wait just a little for organic solar cells to evolve a bit more. Or even quantum dot solar cells. Those are way cheaper and probably less hazardous to the enviroment.

Sure it's a good start.

This is a good start though, because Australia is infamous for being one of the few first world countries to give the finger to the Kyoto Protocal (and this is the same government).

Its a wonderful idea, but it simply isn't enough. It's really a minor power plant.
I'm glad Australia is taking a step in the right direction, but it's a small step, and quite a few leaps will be needed before we're using completely clean energy sources.
