Gas is not the answer to our power costs - The Australian

In 2016 all the lights went out in South Australia, the first time that had happened across an entire Australian state since the 1960s.

In the aftermath, energy and resources ministers met to discuss what went wrong. Tony Marxsen, chairman of the Australian Energy Market Operator at the time, pointed to the fluorescent lights above us and explained that they were flicking on and off constantly, at a frequency of 50 hertz, but that this was unobservable to the human eye.
