    With the current rate, 100% of population should be vaccinated in about 90 weeks.

    That's good progress - a month or so ago people were saying 5 years.
    Just goes to show that people can't read or understand a plan that increases the rate as time goes on.

    So by next week they should be finished this afternoon then.

    You may not have seen this - it is premium content.

    In short, generation is increasing as it is required with smaller plants (wind generation being keen) and Transpower is bullish on "distributed generation".

    Residential power demand was stagnant for more than a decade, now its not.
    Clear incentives to bring more power online + tiwai closing soon.

    Sarcasim?
    Not the plan that they have exposed.
    It is odd that people extrapolate the existing rate without understanding the planned increase in rate (which they have followed so far).
    Bloomfield said today (at the 1o'clock) that they had additional providers to come onstream in late July.
    It would have been pointless vaccinating at a faster rate when we weren't going to get the vaccine to use.

    How much solar and wind power waiting to hit the market? According to some scientist speaking on radio earlier this week, there is all sorts of wind and solar options close to being operational that we will have to find ways to export it. And don't bet on Tiwai closing soon. They're haven't been operating at Bluff for all these years without learning something from the name.

    From the paywalled article I posted above
    "Meanwhile, Meridian Energy expects to start building its $385m Harapaki wind farm in Hawke's Bay in the second half of this year. Harapaki will be New Zealand's second-largest wind farm - after Trustpower's Tararua site - with 41 turbines
    generating enough to power more than 70,000 average households.

    And Mercury's Turitea wind farm, near Palmerston North, is under construction. The project, expected to generate 470 GWh a year, is expected to be the country's third largest."

    And add in several massive solar-power schemes planned to hit the market.
