    Glad you had a look. It really is the most comprehensive live data base to inform opinions AFAIAC.

    Some days the renewals are flying, price goes negative, etc.

    Some days (evenings mostly) the supply looks like it's close to a knife edge, which is reflected in the price.

    At the very least info like this takes the politics out of it if people see it and learn, and timely, informed decisions can be promoted.

    cheers, DL

    I remember reading that the afternoon the Callide C plant failed, also tripping 2 others, the winds were strong and it was clear and sunny, which greatly helped to replace the lost electricity capacity.
    Imagine if the planned second Qld pumped hydro and the network of new solar and batteries had also been available to help fill the gap.

    I have the screenshots of Qld, NSW, Vic and SA (from the website I posted) from the actual day that happened. It's an education for those who want to really know what the effect was and how it was dealt with.

    The scale of the (ongoing) Callide outage till today was larger than what the whole of SA generates most of the day, everyday.

    Tried to put them up at the time, but they're tiny. I have to work out why.

    When I do post them up you'll see that the shortfall was made up mostly by NSW opening the hydro floodgates and QLD burning coal seam gas and 'non aviation kerosene'.

    That was reflected in the RRP which was sky high for quite a while in QLD and NSW.

    That's the beauty of that website............. no 'I heards'.

    One of the four Callide units is going again, as you would know if you looked.

    cheers, DL

    I think its correct the Callide C failure also tripped the Callide B and Gladstone plants, which then took several hours to restart.

    When you are drafting your post, before submitting it, double click on your image. You should see a dialog offering resize options. I wonder if this will help. They sound like interesting graphics.
