The direct contributing factor was the loss of the distributors... not the wind farms.

And those ageing transmission towers that were obviously in need of replacement and/or refurbishment back in 2009 weren't. I seem to recall Julia Gillard saying that spending on infrastructure (transmission) was "gold-plating" and a complete waste of money.

The AEMO warned the SA government and made constructive suggestions for necessary change years ago. The "direct contributing factor" was political posturing. When are you going to learn? They are all wankers!
