Tasmania could be 95 per cent renewable energy self-sufficient by the end of the year once Cattle Hill Wind Farm is in full operation

by the end of the year? Impressive

Very interesting. Nearly all on the west coast (on on an island.) Wind and hydro can work together: excess wind power are night can be used to pump water back up into dams, ready to be released the next day when power demand is high.

If the Tassie govt and local govt got a bit switched on and not look on land owners solely as a short term source of revenue Tassie could really take off. High rates and land tax + cost to transport to the mainland could easily offset higher power costs to anyone bar aluminium smelters.

The wind farms are on the NORTH coast, dunno how I typed “west. Mind you, the west coast gets pounded by westerlies so maybe some windfarms could be put there at some stage. Next year when I am there for 3 months I will drive and have a look at some of the bigger windfarms there (and buy some lovely cider from Brady’s Lookout cidery. Combine that with a visit to the Launceston Farmers Market maybe.

Switched on, we like Tas as it is, just because idiots want to come here and change to place to become like the cesspool urban squalor they came from, they get the shits when they can get their own way.

We are self sufficient in energy, all renewable, it's only when our idiot politicians sent all our power to Aus and ran down our dam reserves, that we had to get diesel generators in. The majority of people here don't want wind farms, don't want the bass link cable, don't want to send our energy to Aus and don't want more idiots coming here to live.

Tassie has Bell Bay and not much else. A pathetically small population, should amalgamate with Victoria. That or wake up.

You'd last 5 minutes down here, before someone tells you to piss off back where you came from. Typical nutter from Aus, they want our lifestyle, but demand we change to what they are fleeing from, pathetic logic, but understandable.

No thinking about it, historically and geologically, Tas has never been part of Australia, it's a part of the Antarctic and Canada. Tasmania is politically and economically linked to Aus, we have a human genetic connection but have a different appreciation of life and how to live it.

that wasn't what i was talking about.

1.4 billion yrs ago there was no Tassie, no Canada and no Australia.

Tassie has always been a part of Australia. Whatever it may have been 1.4 billion yrs ago when it formed part of the area you now know as Canada, it was never Tasmania.

Didn't forget, sometimes it's so obvious, no need to mention it, it speaks for itself.
