Don’t turn back on coal - CQ Today

On 9 September 2016, the smokestacks at the Playford coal fired power station were blown up. The then Premier of South Australia, Jay Weatherill, was adamant that "There's no future in coal-fired power generation." By the end of the month, the lights in the whole of South Australia went out as lack of reliable electricity exposed the weakness of renewable electricity.

The South Australian Government then spent over $500 million on a gas fired power plant to firm up supply.
