The story in pictures.
Remember that South Australia imports coal power from Victoria when there is not enough local gas and wind to keep the lights on. Imports are not shown on that AEMO display. At 5am today the demand in SA was 1.1GW and the wind supplied precisely half of that with 240MW imported. Across the NEM the windmills were delivering 22% (26% in SA) to provide 7.1% of demand.
Evening update. At 7 the wind is providing 5.0% of the demand across SE Australia. In South Australia it is 7.1% and they are importing five times as much as the local wind supply can manage.
Progress with RE projects. A report on progress in the first quarter of the year from Watt Clarity, a commercial site promoting RE. All sweetness and light, forging towards 10GW of installed solar and wind power. What could go wrong, just build more windmills!
