Energy stories

Energy storage levels monitored

The long dry summer has impacted on Tasmania’s energy reserves, with storage levels down 11 per cent compared with the same time last year. Last month Tasmania imported three times more energy than it exported. The Energy Regulator is monitoring the situation closely, but said no additional action is required at this time. Some areas of the state recorded their driest January on record. In the meantime, Hydro Tasmania has confirmed the Tamar Valley Power Station is operating at full capacity. The public is also urged to be cautious about water usage. TasWater is currently reviewing its water resources around the state in light of the dry weather. It urges people to use this precious resource wisely, even if water restrictions are not in place in their area.
