Lucky for us WEAL that renewable technology is getting cheaper by the day
And South Australia is a top example Dave as to wind farm, solar, coal plant closure **** ups as to cost and how Governments can kill off the elderly and make the poor poorer.
Before the 20% power hike comes in July 1, SA has over 12,000 homes with electricity cut off, businesses are leaving in droves and won't invest here.
Beware of what you wish for.
Posted Today at 11:01 AMAnd another thing, SA has an abundance of gas, my last bill ending March 2017 paid $0.36.6 cents per MJ. We SA, sell to Japan for $0.06 a MJ. You work that out, we should buy from Japan.
Thanks Dave, I'll have to have abler now.
Seen the Hunter Valley lately...hardly fucking paradise, air that smells like rotten eggs that you can cut chunks out of....( although not yet as bad as Beijing )...and holes...lots and lots of great big holesSolar / wind power on anything other than the micro level is laughable and its about time we got that through out heads, and more importantly, pressuring guberment to do likewise. There are far more promising fields like bio fuel secreting bacteria that actually absorb CO2, vastly more efficient nuclear reactors, and yes, even the always ' 30 years away' fusion energy we should be pumping R&D money into. Displacing the farmers livestock with eye sore wind-farms and solar panels, rendered impotent as soon as nature fails to co operate is a fools erred and a sink hole for moneys that could be far more wisely invested.
Coal is simple, cheap and will see us well into the 22nd century. Clean it up, make it more efficient, stop hating on it. Its a wondrous thing. We should be exploiting the fact that we have it in spades. Even gas will see us out for the next 120 years, and much cleaner.
Bankrupting business to fund renewable energy white elephants and freezing old folk to death because they cant afford to turn on the second bar on the old radiant heater isn't the way to go.
Important to note also that government basically **** every project they touch to pieces. Leave it to private enterprise.
According to recent email the cheques in the mail. Colleague has received a cheque, which took about 6 weeks. $50 = one 23l batch of a very good hoppy home brew!Has anyone in Victoria got the $50 off the Andrews Government for visiting the energy website, had no intention of changing energy companies just wanted the $50
Yes we claimed it. We had already used it and changed. So we did it again and it still said the same company. But we collected the $50.Has anyone in Victoria got the $50 off the Andrews Government for visiting the energy website, had no intention of changing energy companies just wanted the $50
How long did it take them to cough up?Yes we claimed it. We had already used it and changed. So we did it again and it still said the same company. But we collected the $50.
Or something like that, I wasn't really listening to the finance minister when she was telling me.
