I wonder how many accidents there will be in a state without traffic lights? Windmills not working out very well I take it?

Incredible!

No need to fantasize about an EMP event when a severe storm will do the trick.

Seems very vulnerable.

Re: All South Australia without Electricity!!!!!

Hospitals should have backup generators (I hope they've tested them previously) but I wonder what happens to people with home medical equipment that requires power?

When an entire state goes down, presumably even those with their own home power storage won't be able to communicate unless the comms centres have backup generators?

No doubt the falsehoods and excuses will be flowing in the morning. The storm will be Tony Abbott's fault for axing the carbon tax or something.

Re: All South Australia without Electricity!!!!!

It's all ok, the entire state grid was designed to shut down this way if the transmission interconnector is hit by lightning 

SA haven't heard that all other states have redundancy high up on the requirement hahhahahhahhhaaa

Yeah won't they ever!

I've kept mine fairly basic but I was inspired by storms to start prepping for a few days without power. I've gone a bit further now but I definitely feel less vulnerable.

Re: All South Australia without Electricity!!!!!

Good point from Andrew Bolt:

"This astonishing blackout in South Australia raises this question for any manufacturer or investor: if you wanted to start a new business that needed lot of electricity, would you start it in the state with the most expensive and least reliable power in Australia?

No wonder the joint is going broke."


I intend to live forever. So far, so good.

Re: All South Australia without Electricity!!!!!

MIT Paper on Pebble Bed Reactor
http://web.mit.edu/pebble-bed/papers1_f … Energy.pdf

Beyond SA, Australia needs to adopt fourth-generation nuclear power generation.

Low cost, reliable, baseload power not at the mercy of the weather! Low carbon emissions (at point of generation) as a bonus.

Couple it with a high-capacity desalination plant in the same complex and generate vast quantities of potable water at low cost, another long-term infrastructure problem solved; taking the pressure the river ought to keep the greenies pacified.

Anyone who wants to harp on about Three Mile Island, Chernobyl or Fukushima? Then why has there never been accidents in France, who generates over 75% of its electricity from nuclear reactors, or Switzerland (over 30%).

Australia's outbacks is vast, deserted and geologically stable, ideal for disposal of any radioactive waste with long half-life. (Inevitably some aboriginal group will claim that particular patch of dirt is a 'sacred cultural site' as soon as interest stirs...cross that bridge when we get to it.)

The last serious nuclear power proposal was in 2007, proposal was for a pilot-scale plant at the Upper Spencer Gulf in South Australia. (Unsurprisingly killed off by irrational fears, political posturing and electioneering.)

Re: All South Australia without Electricity!!!!!

It would make sense to build a Nuclear Precinct in SA near Olympic Dam.

Mined (This is happening)
Power it (Silly not too)
Waste Management (This is proposed)
