Just starting the thread really, but it looks like a spike is forecast in the next hour or so.

 

In general the following seems to cause spikes:

 

  • High demand caused by things like a really cold day across the whole country 
  • Unexpected demand, like a cold snap that wasn't properly forecast - it takes a while to spin up generation resources
  • Power stations or cables linking islands aren't working

Flick general discussion on this thread please. Please keep this thread only for price spike alerts.

I was thinking of doing this last night but automating alerts via the Geekzone API (if it'll let me) - maybe @freitasm might be able to get PeterReader to do the task by scraping data off EM6 or via the API.

 

Prices are higher than normal right now with an average price of 24.6c/kW across the country.

Flick's "today's prices" in their dashboard is predicting a significant price spike around 6pm this evening.
