Morrison announces cash injection for NT
And this was announced right after the NT lifted its moratorium on fracking.

Ailing economy needs on-shore gas, says Opposition
Mr. Higgins you are a dinosaur. No-one wants fracking except those with vested interests. We want renewables. End of story.

Seniors concessions praised, but questions about tiers
44% of bills?? I agree with Jonathan – it sounds high. But then again it’s probably the way you have worded it to make it sound high. 44% on bills is probably not that much. It’s not 44% of income.
Perhaps COTA and the government should be putting some more work into energy efficiency. I’m not keen on propping up senior’s excessive power bills.
Btw – what is COTA??

Community solar: the devil is in the wires
I’m not sure what the point of this article is. One one hand it is talking about community solar, on the other hand it is talking about going off grid. They are two separate things.

How 50% solar in the NT by 2030 can mean 100% in Alice
Ian, I’m not sure I agree with you on the “charade” although it is frustrating not being able to export excess energy. The thing is, that when you install a large system such as a 300kW system you would be well aware of the network restrictions from Power Water Corporation. You then have the choice of:-
1) Undersizing your system so that you can use all the energy produced.
2) Installing a system large enough that the shoulder period (morning and afternoon) is large, but you still dump energy. (I’m guessing this is what you have chosen to do).
3) Installing a battery.
We can’t really expect the network providers to just accept all the energy produced by solar systems at any time of the day and still be there as a back up, able to provide all your power if something goes wrong.
It’s best to manage our own expectations, understand the current limitations and work within them. “Charade” is a little harsh, non?
