The two weeks still Wednesday last week saw HLY5 on outage so there was reduced generation and given the dry sequence with South Island Hydro lakes falling prices have inched up.
Upon the return of HLY5, Pole 2 went out of service until last night with Pole 3 (and HVDC capability entirely) being out of service between Saturday and Sunday.
TCC (the other big thermal unit in the North Island) is on outage until around 8 December - you may see it start up if prices continue to be high with low / minimal inflows.
Champion. Thanks for that. Will continue to enjoy BBQ's then until things settle down.
