News today confirms that the Basslink failure was due to Basslink Pty Ltd operating the cable above safe use thresholds.
This adds weight to the case for public ownership of the asset.
Private ownership of the cable has meant it has taken two years for the public to find out what caused the failure. We cannot afford to be left in the dark over crucial matters of energy security again.
