In Competition #5, we asked entrants to correctly forecast what the peak South Australian demand would be.

This morning I posted this analysis of how the South Australian demand was lacklustre – as was the case in neighbouring Victoria.

Wear a big smile today, Cameron Butler at the Energy Price Solutions, as you were an amazing 5MW off the correct number with your entry!
