OpenNem charts shows clearly how after the coal strike from Tuesday 5Jun18 to Saturday 9Jun18 when coal fired generation was restricted to below ~5,500MW and imports & prices were up – coal is now generating up to ~7,500MW as required and imports & prices are down. Large Chart
Did somebody kick some butt? NemWatch has an article on the “outages” NSW coal chaos. IMHO the cluster of outages in cool weather looked deliberate, just part of testing and gaming the market. In order to get at the truth behind rocketing mad electricity prices we need a Royal Commission run by engineers.
