You just make me angry sorfed. You made those points 1 to 5 above; I addressed them and now because you have no idea about anything, change the subject to an article about SA and renewable energy.
Miskelly and Quirk are both hardly independent commentators as both have vested interests in the current power supply shambles. And I do not give a crap what it costs to save our environment.
These blokes are saying that SA needs to spend $90 billion on battery storage, that is $90,000,000,000. I have battery storage at my office for our solar system which gives us 12.5 kWh which I am told is massive for a home, it cost $5000, and again I am told that the new Li batteries will be 50% of that. So even at $5000, $90,000,000,000 will do 18 million homes !!!!! Do you own sums, and then tell some-one who cares what you think.
