We expect (we hope!) to see them running very infrequently after commissioning has been completed.

  1. Have they fessed up to cost and pool receipts – are they registered participants.?

  2. Does anyone know when the other 7 (or is that 4) units will ne commissioned?

    Somewhere the goalposts seem to have shifted from 9 units down to 6 units.

    At whose instigation?

    From Adelaide Advertiser 2 August 2017
    Mr Weatherill has announced plans to lease, and possibly later buy, nine new turbines which can run off either diesel or gas, and provide the state up to 276MW of energy in times of emergency.
