Renewables hit a record share in Australia

Australia got a late start on the shift to clean energy because of the previous government. But things are changing fast.

Earlier today, renewables accounted for 72.9% of the mix in Australia's main grid.
- Rooftop solar 44%
- Solar farms 14.8%
- Wind 12.3%
- Hydro 1.3%
That sent spot power prices to negative A$53.34/MWh
