Re: The maths don't add up...

I would hope that the loss of 11% of a months production, so ~1% of your yearly production would not entirely be offset by increased prices due to the restricted supply. It probably helps a bit, but hopefully not enough.

In which case, who ever made the decision to remove or undersize the generators gets a good kicking for costing the company a tonne of money. I sincerely hope that it wasnt an Engineer who screwed up and caused the failure, and it really did come down to a management decision, because we all know the engineer wont get anywhere near the protection for their mistake as the manager will...
