Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

But that is what these generators were about, meeting peak demand and now we don't have them for that. We didn't save $400m and get the same outcome, we lost $200m and accepted we don't want to meet peak demand for an extra $400m. The generators were going to cost the South Australian taxpayers $60...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

My view is that the large solar farms proposed for western NSW would be looking to export excess power somewhere......and this new direct connection to SA makes that very easy. Yes they could export to Melbourne but the power would have to "go round the block" to get to there. There will be no direc...

These generators are now in the supply vs demand pool. They will lead to 273mw of generation to not be built by someone...
