Adelaide power price booms as interconnector fails

“At 1114 hrs(26Apr18) the South East Substation to Tailem Bend Substation No.1 275 kV Line and the South East Substation No.1 SVC tripped.” See AEMO Market Notice 62496. About 400MW was lost and lasted till about 1530 hrs, gas increased from 46% to 61%. Shown well on OpenNEM for SA. Put your specs on to see the mini-micro contribution of the famous battery. The SA average price for the day zoomed to $405.20 but the 30min intervals went into several $thousands and 5min intervals over $10K. Interesting the prices surges in Tasmania on 24th and ANZAC Day – I see too BassLink is still broke, been out for 5 weeks. Ah “The Battery of The Nation!!” So much idiocy around our electricity policy.
