Electricity in Sydney, Power in Sydney, Tours in Sydney, Import in Sydney

Murray 1 power station is the second largest power station in the snowy mountains scheme. For more information on scheme safety contact the visitors centre. Safety is important at all times while visiting the scheme. Light refreshments are available in the cafe. There are barbeque and picnic areas by the water that are open to the public. Murray 1 is 10 kilometres out of khancoban on the alpine way. Next to the power station is the murray 1 visitors centre which offers visitors an exciting interactive experience with a wide range of displays, 'hands on' models and exhibits. There are 10 turbines at murray 1, each capable of producing enough electricity to supply over 95, 000 houses. Murray 2 power station is unavailable for tours but can be viewed from a viewing area on waterfall farm road.

As a means of offsetting the disastrous effects of droughts, the concept of diverting water from some of Australia’s best obvious rivers the Murray, Murrumbidgee, Snowy and tumult Rivers dates back as far as the 1880s. SHTPL acted as an agent for the Scheme’s electricity entitlement holders and was the registered generator in respect of the Authority’s generation capabilities. This resulted in the merger of the Authority and SHTPL to become Snowy Hydro Limited. Snowy Hydro Limited operates and maintains the Snowy Mountains Scheme, recognized as one of the fresh courteous engineering wonders of the world. The potential for cloud seeding in the Snowy Mountains was recognized more than fifty years ago, with a observe undertaken by the CSIRO and the Snowy Mountains Hydroelectric Authority between 1955 and 1959. This early research reported a 19 amplify in precipitation for those storms that were seeded. The outcomes were challenged however because of issues relating to trial design, and the evaluation and interpretation of the results. An extended period of drought during the second half of the 1990s prompted Snowy Hydro to further investigate and endorse the effectiveness of cloud seeding for enhancing snowfall. The Committee subsequently found that cloud seeding should be considered as potential generator of surplus water. In 2003, an independent Expert Panel was commissioned to investigate any environmental issues associated with cloud seeding. The Cloud Seeding trial was fully funded by Snowy Hydro. Interim results from the trial were found to be very promising, and comprehensive environmental monitoring undertaken since the commencement of the trial had shown no evidence of any adverse environmental impacts. By the hasty winter of 2009, ample cloud seeding experiments had been completed to permit for a robust autonomous scientific evaluation of the trial to be undertaken. That evaluation found cloud seeding increased precipitation by an average of 14, and that there were no harmful impacts on rainfall downwind of the target area. The NRC also conducted its own autonomous peer review, consulting extensively with stakeholders and engaging further autonomous experts to assess both the outcomes of the experiment and environmental monitoring. Overall, the NRC confirms that the trial is being conducted in compliance with the Act, is of a tall scientific standard and the evaluation plan is statistically sound. There is no evidence that cloud seeding operations have had harmful environmental impacts over the first phase of the trial (sperm 1), based on Snowy Hydro’s environmental monitoring results. There is no evidence that the chemicals worn as the seeding agent have accumulated in sampled soils, sediments, water or moss in the areas being tested. The monitoring results have detected no harmful impacts on rainfall in downwind areas during the beginning phase of the trial. Its primary statistical analysis of the trial data yielded a sure but inconclusive result. However, Snowy Hydro also analyses physical evidence and carried out a number of secondary statistical analyses of the trial data. Together, these indicate that cloud seeding has had a definite effect in increasing snowfall in the overall target area. The trial continues to comply with the Act and to be of a high scientific standard. There is no evidence of harmful environmental impacts, or of adverse impacts of rainfall in downwind areas.
