103 - SA's significant shift to exporting to Victoria

This week, a series on South Australia - all using data from Global Roam's excellent NEM Review software, which you can purchase here.

Today's chart shows the net flow across South Australia's two interconnectors (Heywood and Murraylink), and how, in recent weeks, there's been a fairly significant shift in that flow - South Australia is now exporting a fair percentage of its power to Victoria. The state hasn't exported this amount since at least 2010, and if you go back further I suspect its been quite some time since the level of net export was sustained at this level. 

This is largely related to a big upswing in wind power output, which is also at historically high levels (as is often the case in June / July).
