  1. By 2022 Australia’s forced march back to third world conditions will likely see households able to afford to use only a single light during the few hours of the day that electricity is available.
    By then “demand management” brought about by the RET will mean the reliable base load power of coal stations such Liddell just won’t be needed any more?

  2. From recent articles by him I calculate that by 2022 Josh Frydenberg will realise

    Conventional generation = cheaper prices and stable supply
    Renewable generation = expensive electricity and blackouts.

    As for a number of other politicians I don’t believe they are capable of grasping the meaning of such a complex matter. Really, we are in the hands of fools and idiots (judging by their utterances).

  3. I think Frydenberg is solely concerned with keeping his political nose clean so he can remain as the israeli representative on the right – c.f. danby and drefus on the left.

    between both libs, nats, labour, greens and xensphon in Canberra we are likely to have painted ourselves into such a costly corner by the time the next two coal fired power stations close, that the cost of electricity will totally wreck many businesses and many domestic customers will go off-grid despite the inordinately high life costs of batteries. This in turn will leave less and less grid clients to share the transmission/distribution costs making grid electricity higher again.
    Really hope I’m wrong – bigly
