Re: That table actually tells us why Turnbull is right

Are you contending that if the wind farms had not been built, and new or existing power stations had been in their place the blackout wouldn't have occurred?

It doesn't matter how many new power stations that SA had if the feeders dropped out and disconnected them from the grid. It is not normal practice to place a coal fired power station in the middle of the city, it would be placed closest to the coal fields. Say at the end of a 275 kV feeder...
