SA’s reliance on wind is getting to a point where there is not much to do except importing from VIC and generating with expensive fuel, such as diesel, when wind speed is not at its best shape.
In this Chart of the week, we take a closer look at South Australia’s electricity prices during state election day on Saturday 19 March, where wind generation was too low, resulting in $9,934/MWh of electricity price at 6:15 PM. It was the second time in March that distillate became online with $1811/MWh of average value this time.
