22 South Australian power transmission towers were brought down
« on: October 01, 2016, 04:48:29 pm »
22 South Australian power transmission towers were brought down in the strong winds.Dave had a comment on this-  on the show,  here in SA We had some Adelaide politicians running around like a headless chickens knowing that on the 3 day of a power outage,  IF power had been still out , crime rates may go up.  in Adelaide the power went back on in 8 to 12 hours.  some say that events and a focus on renewable energy created the 'perfect storm' with no backup generators?
