    I did not know the generators had been removed from the site.

    We do have the gas and it could be produced far cheaper than Bass basin but a gas peaking plant could be built much quicker than Snowy 2.0 which I gather was the replacement for Hazlewood.

    There is so much BS talked in this space about what is and is not subsidized we need politicians to come clean ,if governments need to subsidize renewable to get them going well come out and say it but I do have a problem with throwing a few dollars around to small sections of the community for solar rooftop when the money should be spent on the system statewide.

    Tasmania has at least 12 pumped Hydro sites that could be built quickly and economically but then I gather we would need another $1 billion cable and that $1 billion could be used in Victoria,if you look at what Tasmania has they are in the ideal situation with wind and hydro and a small amount of solar.
