Australian electrical system operator orders wind farms to cut back production in wake of blackout

 

 

TEN South Australian wind farms have been ordered to limit generation in the wake of the disastrous statewide power blackout because the national electricity market operator has declared they have not performed properly.

 

The state’s biggest wind farm, at Snowtown, is among those which the Australian Energy Market Operator has targeted in its “management and analysis” of last Wednesday’s unprecedented power outage as it gradually restores the power network. The move will prompt further questions over whether renewable energy jeopardised electricity grid stability and triggered the cascading blackout, which started when fierce winds damaged 23 Mid North transmission towers and severed three high-voltage lines.

Victims of the South Australia Statewide Blackout to Sue Wind Farm Operators

 

During the recent statewide blackout in South Australia, there is no doubt that unstable output from wind farms triggered the cascade of events which caused the power outage. The question is – are wind farm operators liable for the economic harm their “product” caused?

Parts of South Australia blacked out again

 

Don’t expect South Australia to provide reliable electricity.

 

 

Wind farms were only generating at 6% of their rated capacity when the fault hit.

Another successful government treasury transfer fraud to the 1% and quid pro quo back to the politicians.

Wake up lemmings.

 

To paraphrase President Eisenhower, "Beware of the Environmental-Industrial Complex."

Rolling blackouts ordered in SA in 40C heat

The Wonderful World of Renewables

 

South Australia, with 40% renewables, is lucky this has been a mild summer.*
