The future wholesale price of electricity is already rising, following decisions by three of the country's electricity generators to close more than 1,000 Megawatts of installed generation capacity that uses gas and coal to run.
Trees falling on power lines create risks to people and property, and lead to higher power prices for consumers, says Graeme Peters, chief executive of the Electricity Networks Association (ENA). “These risks and costs could be reduced if industry had a greater ability to manage trees before they fall on lines, but the current rules aren’t working effectively,” Mr Peters said.
