Hi :)
Not sure if here is the place for this but it might be of interest as there has been much ill informed discussion on SA and its unreliable power ! Mainly by our political 'masters' (or is that fools :?: ).

Go down to the graph of the input power mix if nothing else !

Ah yes, we're not supposed to talk about those matters of course :)

Interestingly, just after the ABC has copped a fair bit of criticism for its coverage of the SA outage and its related examination of Aus. grid power more generally, Dr. Vanessa Vanessa Guthrie has been appointed to the board of the ABC. Dr Guthrie was formerly the chairwoman of the Minerals Council.

The greater the mess government makes of grid power, the greater the cost and the greater chance that huge numbers of people will drop out and go off-grid. Tesla already thinks we're going in that direction. That's why they've set up here in such a big way.
