The Unconformity

Tasmania’s West Coast is the place to be this weekend with biennial arts festival, The Unconformity, kicking off today in Queenstown.

Premier Will Hodgman said, through Events Tasmania, the Liberal Government provided $900,000 to support the event in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

“Unconformity embraces the unique character and heritage of the West Coast, and is a celebration of this unique community.

“It’s a first class boutique event which draws many visitors to the West Coast, supports local businesses, and puts the limelight on the region, its places and people,” said Premier Hodgman.

Minister for Arts Elise Archer said funding of $250,000 was also secured through Arts Tasmania to provide arts activities in the Queenstown region.

“This year’s program includes visual arts, music, performance, dance and cultural celebration that all collide comfortably with local industry, landscape, and the west coast lifestyle” said Minister Archer.

The Unconformity runs from Friday, 19 until Sunday, 21 October. Further information is available from the festival website www.theunconformity.com.au

    Was the $250,000 donated by solar feed in tariffs?

    One can receive 8 cents per kWhr for power to the grid, but when power from the grid is used it costs 26 cents (309% profit) on that original power fed in, and there is no discount where such excess power is used by the solar feed in mugs to run their own appliances.

    It is said that power prices are coming down, but not after January 1 when all tariffs contracts (ho ho) will be reduced to 8 cents.

    WAIT FOR THE SCREAMS !

    Great news! Your neighbours can help generate your energy and be charged 26 cents for their profits.

    NB: The Economic Regulator estimated the loss of 200 jobs on Solar Installers when the 8 cent tariff was introduced.
