Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

More wind farms, then solar farms and rooftop solar (home and business) coming online. The Heywood Connector capacity only increased by 50 mw if my memory is correct. And the Snowtown (3 ?) wind farm was financed by the ACT government so they want their "power"....coz they paid for it! All future w...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Megawatts are a unit of power, not energy. Unless power use changes, a megawatt per day is the same as a megawatt per year or a megawatt per second. I'm lost. Power, energy and time are all directly related. Just like distance, speed and time are directly related. 2400km/day is 100km/h which is 10h...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

The Wikipedia article does not say how much power (MW) or energy (MWh) the desalination plant uses per day/year. It does say "The plant uses 3.47 to 3.70 kilowatt-hours of electricity per kilolitre of water produced.", cited to an article on the Australian Water Association website. So if we pick th...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

The problem may well lie with the business model Tailem bend Solar Farm are operating under. Sounds like they rely too much on the "spot" price ie the price electricity will go for on the open market when demand goes up (most extreme case scenario, summer heat wave where $14,000 mwh is the maximum ...

Shop 95 is in the southeastern building next door to the big pharmacy (used to be Shoe Shed). The shop next to it is also vacant and used to be Anytime Fitness.

Re: News & Developments: Elizabeth & Salisbury

Rite Price Grocery Clearance Store is closing at Elizabeth South. A new store is opening at Munno Para Shopping City. Trying to think of where Rite Price will fit at Munno Para Shopping City. I can't see Foodland, Kmart or Coles moving, which leaves Cheap as Chips, which I'd be surprised if they we...

Am on a single car train to Outer Harbour - I knew they were running these on the Grange line but it's a first for me on the OH line. More Lib cuts I guess... 🙁
How full was it, and how long until the next one?I 'd rather catch frequent trains than large trains if it's choice.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Hopefully a three-car electric set is enough to address capacity issues that arise in morning and evening peaks before and after Mawson Lakes, which is easily the most heavily patronised station on the line. Most passengers can get a seat before there, but after, it is not possible. I always laugh ...

And there goes the pyramid
This building and realm stick out like a sore thumb. I preferred it before when we had Westpac House as the tallest
building and a nice pyramid skyline.
The pyramid was already violated by the tall ones on the left of the last photo.
