Another fossil fuel generator mothballed

The 210 MW gas-fired Tamar Valley power station in Tasmania has been mothballed. Is it another victim of low demand?

CORRECTION: Hydro Tasmania has informed Climate Spectator that the Tamar Valley power station has not been 'mothballed' and remains in 'operational readiness'.  The full statement from the company is reprinted below. Climate Spectator had earlier republished a commentary piece from WattClarity reflecting on a report in The Mercury that the power station had been mothballed.
