    Renewables to replace coal in Australia. A step in the right direction.




    NSW renewable energy plan seals death warrant for six gigawatts of coal | RenewEconomy

    The NSW Liberal governmentís announcement for its renewable energy growth plans seals the death warrant for about 6 gigawatts of coal capacity, and is very bad news for the owners of the same.
    By 2030, we expect around 6GW of currently operating coal generation will be surplus to requirements. Exactly which generators will close and how soon will depend on competition. In ITKís main model we have, in previous runs, constrained NSW coal generation to a minimum of 2GW up to 2030. That seemed academic a couple of years ago, but is a live issue now.
    Iím pretty sure the dinosaurs died out when they stopped gathering food and started having meetings to discuss gathering food

    A bookshop is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking

    Just a simple change back to Bio-Septics would solve a heap of those problems.

    On the Acreage blocks here they require these multi-tank systems. The output water is then used for gardens etc and is quite safe.

    Probably a great idea RL, but us being on Wireless BB for Phone & ISP Services transmitted from Lenswood aprox 8 kms away may pose a slight problem, would you not think, not to mention those on Satellite ?

    That's our front yard. Most of the native garden covers a septic system which also takes grey water and operates silently, without much power usage and keeps the shallow roots damp. Working brilliantly.

    AGL are going to build a "big battery" on the site of the Defunct Torrens Island Power Station I read. That makes good sense to me as all the primary Switch yards, Transmission equipment & towers begin there so unless they are all to be replaced it should save them a Motza.


    See, I know I should be on their Board.
