Re: What redundancy?

The Tassy grid was recently supplemented by 200 large diesel generators because they only put down one cable to Victoria and it broke.

Had there been no cable across Bass Strait the 200 large diesel generators would not have been necessary! This is a point not lost on ever so many Tasmanians who also resent being labelled "dirty polluters" because we are now deemed to consume electrickery generated by burning brown coal in Victoria.

Basslink was sold to us on the basis it would make our electrickery supply more reliable. It did the exact opposite. Politicians' promises are like that.
