What's really incredible about this, is that the government is next to useless, and pro-coal, but the people, the state leaders, and the economics of RE are charging forward and making a mockery of government action (or inaction). It's a bit like US state policies v's presidential rulings/policies.

Apologies for going on (all the time) about the power of economics, and I do wish we where all doing the right thing, for the right reasons, but I just can't wipe the smile off my face as RE wins the economic battles too.

Best ease up on the smiles to rest my face ready for the legal outcomes on there way regarding Trump, Koch's and Exxon .......  fingers crossed!

Good Evening All,

I guess temperatures of 46.6oC would focus people's attention?

It would focus mine. And S. Australia has been proving that RE works faster than central government can deny it.

For households, the choice is simple, they can install very cheap PV, prices are silly cheap in Aus, and displace a UK like 40% of import, but add on storage and they get into the mid 90%'s. Wow.

With rising PV efficiencies (more Wp on the same roof space) combined with falling costs, and cheaper storage, I bet it won't be long before PV + storage Aus homes start to go 100% PV almost by accident, at that point and with standing charges around A$1/day, folk will start to leave the grid. Though this might be prevented by the Aussie schemes where households with storage sell to the grid at wholesale prices when prices go nuts in the peaks, such as selling at A$1/kWh when grid prices hit A$1,400/MWh (as per last year)
