    Nah, dirty unreliable old crap coal

    Looks like a weather event.
    Perhaps the network was at it's most sensitive bushfire mitigation setting as a precaution.
    Time will tell.
    Possible scenario:
    Passing storm and lightning strikes caused two transmission lines to trip.
    Resulting in Loy Yang A having no connection to market so it trips to protect itself.
    Triggering rolling blackouts to further protect infrastructure.

    Significant power system event – 13 Feb 2024At 1308 hrs
    13/02/2024 a significant power system event occurred.
    Description of event – Multiple tripping of generation and transmission lines in the Vic region
