A quick look at monthly stats shows that, whilst it’s been blowing a gale in SE Australia in recent days, it’s not yet set a new ‘peak instantaneous wind farm output’ record.

Last night, in addition to the dramas unfolding in the QLD region, we set a new record for coincident NEM-wide wind production – eclipsing the prior record from exactly 6 weeks ago.
David Osmond’s question on Twitter prompted me to have a look at large wind production overnight.
Yesterday (on Fri 21st Aug 2020) we saw a new record set for BOTH daily peak instantaneous output across all wind farms in the NEM, and also daily average output across all wind farms in the NEM.
