Thursday 9th May 2024 – Day #1 under Administered Pricing in NSW

With NSW under Administered Pricing from 19:55 on Wednesday 8th May 2024, spot prices can’t rise above $600/MWh in the ENERGY (or any FCAS) market in NSW.

As a result, this snapshot from NEMwatch for 19:00 on Thursday 9th May 2024 does not have the same level of eye-candy appeal (or horror, if you’re the one paying the bills – not necessarily the energy user, at least in the short term):


But it is useful for highlighting quite similar conditions as what occurred yesterday evening in NSW … down to also having AEMO declared an ‘Actual LOR1’ condition in Market Notice nnnn as follows:

The snapshot at 19:00 above should show the tail end of this.



Nothing more, at this point…
