Adelaide Govt “Reverse RET” blocked by wind/solar/storage lobby

To improve South Australian grid security AEMO made recommendations to keep more “real” generation online. Real = “fossil fuel” which for SA means only gas or diesel. The SA Govt created its Energy Security Target (EST), a key plank of its $550 million energy plan. The EST is in fact a reverse or counter RET – so the EST was a sound move to attempt a bandaid repair of the damage caused by destroying the coal fired power stations in Port Augusta. Now we see the mega-powerful renewables/storage lobby has monstered the SA Govt who have now postponed EST to the outer darkness in 2020. You could not make this storyline up.
