Tasmania energy crisis

Tasmania energy crisis:

The Tasmanian Government is bracing for a worst-case scenario of Hydro Tasmania's dam levels reaching a minimum of 6.5 per cent.

Key points:

  • Dams currently at 14.8 per cent capacity
  • Previous predictions estimated drop to 13.6 per cent
  • Now bracing for fall as low as 6.5 per cent
The dams, which are used for hydro-electric generation, are currently at a record low of 14.8 per cent and falling by more than 0.5 per cent every week.
The Government previously predicted they would reach a low of 13.6 per cent before the broken Basslink power cable was repaired, but that figure appears to have been abandoned.
