I saw people on Facebook claim it would use 46.25MW/day at 100% capacity. I think they pulled that from the wiki page.

46.25 * 365 = 16,881.25MW/year
which is 405,150MWh per year, so solar plant on the dirt out front would provide 1/63 of the power required

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

I was under the impression that the desalination plant had its own solar panel array on site that it uses to power the plant. https://www.abc.net.au/news/image/10620402-3x2-700x467.jpg It has one but it's nowhere near enough energy to power the plant. I wonder how much capacity they could fit in th...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Tailem Bend Solar farm was built and planned for the South Australian market, the NSW interconnector was a far flung idea at the time. Having said that there is also Heywood Connector which enables South Australia to export (max 650mw) into the National Electricity Market. I am waiting to see the l...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

95MW of solar being shut off when the desal plant only needs 50MW to run at full capacity.. pretty stupid planning

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

True. But imo, we should have two indoor arenas, a larger one and a smaller one, and several outdoor courts capable of being used as part of an international tournament. These indoor arena facilities aren't used merely for tennis or basketball or netball, but concerts and other types of events. Acr...

Is Buckland Park finally under construction? there's a lot of earth moving going on out there
Hopefully not.
well it looks like it's well and truly underway now, they're either building dikes around the entire site or just building a long sound barrier

I think it’s a bit of a fancy to desire extensive underground thoroughfares that would then deprive street level (i.e. the urban grain) of much needed life and activity.

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

We shouldn't hold back the transportation needs of a city to save a few already dying rail services. Dig out a huge cavern under the old GPO building on Vic Square and turn it into our central station. Victoria Square is not the ideal location for a central station for the following reasons: - Old ...

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

They need to get northbound open first so they can finish the northern interchange.

Unless they plan on cutting off the right turn onto the Northern Expressway at PWR and rerouting all the traffic through Waterloo Corner

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

Moving interstate trains presents further challenges. Currently trains arriving from Sydney, Perth or Darwin are upwards of 20 carriages long, so the existing alignment at Adelaide terminal works well. Passengers on these trains are heading out for day trips on coaches, or connecting to other boats...

Tram to the Port. Nah, keep the regular rail. But the Port and surrounding beach suburbs should have a tram system of their own.
The Port should be connected with a train service and a tram service, It doesn't have to be one or the either.

If we built a new Glenelg Pier with the same scale as the Brighton Pier in England, it would extend out to the tyre reef. also roughly the same length as the dock the Spirit of Tasmania uses in Melbourne https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/af/Brighton_Pier%2C_Brighton%2C_East_Sussex%2C_...

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

Here's one of a few concepts I put together a few years ago when there was talk about a ferry terminal at Glenelg. This one doesn't include moorings for large yachts. I also thought the terminal could house an aquarium or a museum. It would have cafes, shops etc. Possibly room for conventions and e...
