  1. RERT used to cost less than $5 million per event but now it can be more than 10 times that for a single RERT event…. all ultimately paid for by consumers. This is all happening before the first coal generator retires in Queensland and BEFORE desalination becomes Southeast Queensland’s new source of drinking water. Imagine being dependent on desalination (liquid electricity) for your water supply. Probably why Dubai doesn’t run on solar!
