  1. That looks expensive! Plus, it might be awhile before that plant is back up and operating. At least they had the good sense not to put up windmills!

  2. WA labor have a plan, to build solar farms in cyclone alley, then pipe the power to the Indonesians. What could go wrong Alannah McTiernan? Or was it one drop too many of your favorite tipple?

  3. But you can dissamble a solar pannel when you know is coming and we know. Look Puerto Rico!!! Al their electric net was gone!! Musk wants to make a new net with bateries and solar pannels.

    1. I think disassembling a solar farm sounds kind of unrealistic. A new net wouldn’t solve any of the problems with downed power lines. And the batteries would last a few hours. And the solar panels would get obilterated,

    2. “But you can dissamble a solar pannel when you know is coming and we know.”
      How much labour do you think will be required to disassemble and transport the panels in the time available, how much would it cost to pay that labour, what transport would be available and where do you think would be a suitable place to store them?

      You don’t live in the real world, do you?
