    I think we can guess the answer to that.
    They can each request a lump of coal for their combustion heater.

    There will be plenty to go around.

    Seems to be going well in the ACT, which now draws 100% of its power from wind and solar and is now cutting electricity charges, which were already the lowest in Oz except for Tasmania, with its hydro power.
    But hey, if people want to pay more for coal power, it's their choice, I guess.

    Er NO.
    They export power from solar when nobody needs it and then they import coal power at night.
    They say they are 100% because they export the same as they import.
    Lets see how they would go if NSW disconnected Canberra from the NSW grid.
    Answer no power at peak times when needed.

    Bwahahahaha. That’s gold! Love the articles that play to the gullible.

    So on the 2 primary inter connectors the Canberra mob managed to “book” the power from the SA solar farms hey?

    It’s book fiddling. They assign a volume and say it came from X source.

    I know you have a much better understanding than that simplistic post of how the national energy market really works, so I'm not even going to bother explaining it.
    This is the way forwards and its unstoppable.

    I am not going to try and copy all of this article, but it shows up some of the things that are easily overlooked:

    Power granted to switch off household solar in SA to prevent statewide blackout

    Power granted to switch off household solar in SA to prevent statewide blackout - ABC News

    Electricity grid operators will seize the power to remotely switch off new solar panels in South Australia amid warnings the state's solar boom is putting the grid at risk of another statewide blackout.

    The State Government will also underwrite an urgent $10 million investment to manage voltage in the state's power grid, after the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) warned that a voltage disturbance near Adelaide could see up to half South Australia's photovoltaic cells simultaneously switch off.

    "The largest combined generator in our state is also actually an unmanaged generator in our state. And that puts us at very real risk."
