You have to see it to believe it. Victoria (the new wind leader) not much better, flat from 3pm yesterday to 6 this morning and lately producing almost 50MW. Better than nothing I suppose. The wind died in Victoria at noon on Thursday and was not measurable through Friday into Saturday apart from a brief appearance at breakfast time on Friday. Be warned, the wind in this AEMO Fuel Mix display is in blue and the hydro is green. On the Aneroid site the colours are reversed.
For individual states look under the list of wind farms.
Across the NEM the wind was providing 1.5% of power with Queensland (2 wind farms) and Tasmania (four) doing the heavy lifting.
Bonus. The story of The Spectator and the founding father. Robert Rintoul (1787–1858), the workaholic Scottish Nonconformist and printer-turned-entrepreneur who founded The Spectator and edited it for thirty years. Backing the 1832 Reform Act and repeal of the Corn Laws, Rintoul made himself one of the great men of early Victorian England, a friend of Dickens and Walter Bagehot (mastermind behind The Economist) and an enemy of ‘toothless’ Lord Melbourne and young Disraeli (‘a spoiled child of parliamentary fashion’). Rintoul, the only editor with a mountain named after him in New Zealand, consciously emulated the spirit of Addison and Steele’s revered, eclectic Spectator of 1711 to 1712.
