    COAL IS DEAD BUT STILL KILLING. The last coal fired power station built in Australia took 4 years. It only opened in 2003, and lasted about 9 years before it was deemed largely redundant. Coal fired power is costing tax payers millions of dollars. The last coal fired power station built in Australia in 2003 will also most likely be Australia's last coal fired power station ever as renewable's have proven to cost a fraction of this to build in a fraction of the time it takes to build the coal fired power stations.
    Date Oct 2012.
    Reduced demand, and the need to reduce carbon emissions, continues to have a dramatic impact on Australia’s coal-fired generators, with the newest cola fired power station built in Australia, one of Queensland’s largest, the Tarong power station, forced to close half of its 1,400MW capacity.
