The consequence will be spiralling power prices and Soviet-era power rationing, whenever the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. As every South Australian knows, attempting to run on sunshine and breezes is a descent into chaos.

Heavy industry will be the first to suffer what is now euphemistically called ‘demand management’. However, there will be plenty of occasions when hospitals and households have their plugs pulled, as well.
