Mythbusting: electricity prices in South Australia

1 Aug 2016
Description

In recent months, there have been a number of inaccurate media stories linking high electricity prices in South Australia with the state’s high proportion of wind and solar generation.

While the complexities and technical aspects of the electricity system can be difficult to fully understand (even for those in the sector), we hope this explainer provides some clear answers on what is happening with electricity prices in South Australia and why other factors such as high gas prices, limited connection with the eastern states and lack of competition in South Australia’s electricity market are primarily to blame.
