Recent rain has done little to replenish Hyrdo’s Tasmania’s storages.
Storages fell to around 18 per cent over the summer period, the lowest in over 40 years, and Hydro’s energy resources manager, David Marshall, says the Basslink power cable and the gas-fired Bell Bay power station are being used extensively.
He says he does not expect power rationing this year.
