Here’s a view of how daily wind farm production (by region, and NEM-wide) has trended over the 2013 calendar year to date – the correlation of output on a daily basis, and the contribution towards regional and NEM-wide demand
Today (Wednesday 24th July) we note how the Queensland lunchtime electricity demand is stuck in the blue zone – the uptake of solar PV, and a sunny day for Clean Energy Week, would be part of the reason.
