AGL Moderator

Hello Community. It's your Community Manager here; Samjy. 

 

WIth the news that Alinta Energy has purchased the Loy Tang B power station in the Latrobe Valley, I'm interested to hear what everyone thinks about this news?

 

Here's where we stand on making an orderly transition to renewable energy

 

I look forward to hearing from you all.

Need to keep coal until it can be replaced.

Short term coal at night, solar at day.

Long term storage farms.

Agl video, only 100 MW investment in renewables.

It is just a pity these coal generation plants are so unreliable. Six failures in just a few weeks for Loy Yang A. The sooner they are replaced with current technology the better. AGL made the right call with Liddell.

I congratulate AGL on its firm stance with the future plans of Lidell! It is almost comical - a Federal Gov ernment who should be leading on power (and everything else), instead begging industry to remain in the dark ages for longer. I just don't get the Governments strange obsession with coal.
