South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill blames everybody but himself for not providing adequate baseload power for his State.
Adelaide back in dark ages amid heatwave
The Australian12:00AM February 9, 2017
South Australia was plunged into a new power crisis last night when more than 40,000 homes across Adelaide had their electricity cut in heatwave conditions as distributor SA Power Networks imposed load-shedding on the city…
Last night’s blackouts were the latest in a series of outages over five months that have cost businesses millions of dollars and infuriated South Australians.
Liberal frontbencher Simon Birmingham, a South Australia senator, said it was further proof that the Weatherill Labor government “can’t keep the lights on” since last September’s statewide blackout.
“It’s a chronic failing that can only hurt investment confidence in the state,” Senator Birmingham told Adelaide’s The Advertiser last night.
“It’s a demonstration that ad-hoc state-based renewable energy targets have gone too far — when reliability can’t be maintained on a day the likes of which South Australia faces numerous times every single summer.”
Greenies should be smiled at indulgently, patted on the head, but NEVER be taken seriously.
