Brown coal generation ceases in South Australia with the closure of Northern Power Station


I expect there will be plenty of other references to this today on other media – for those who come looking on WattClarity, my apologies that I don’t have time today for anything other than posting this snapshot from NEM-Watch at midday today to mark the event:

The National Electricity Market recorded on the day Northern Power Station generation ceased

Not long after snagging the screenshot above, we see prices rise higher in South Australia – to the $400’s per MWh.  We’ve recorded this in the Time-Series Viewer being developed within ez2viewAustralia:

Interesting times indeed for the market …

  1. Great to see the report on the closure but its a shame the Port Augusta solar project hasn’t got up yet. Fingers crossed for those workers to jobs in the new economy.
