Tassie keeps lights on despite challenges

Tasmania's energy supply sector has had a rough 12 months, battling bushfires, drought, storms, floods and the failure of a Bass Strait electricity cable delivering backup power from the mainland.

But despite the hurdles, all demand for electricity during 2015-16 was met, the Office of the Tasmanian Economic Regulator said in a report released on Friday.

"Overall, Tasmanian electricity and natural gas suppliers met most of their respective performance standards, which is comparable to industry performance over recent years," regulator Joe Dimasi said.
