ACT has '100 per cent renewable' electricity from today: mainly thanks to politicians blowing hot air!

It's not as much of a headline as you think!

"For every watt of power the ACT consumes, it pays one back through its renewable investments around the country, but  ACT homes still consumed energy produced by coal and gas plants.  Only about five per cent of the territory's electricity is generated within its borders, by a few solar farms and rooftop panels on Canberra homes. The rest comes from the national electricity market — the grid that powers the eastern seaboard — and four-fifths of the grid's power comes from non-renewable sources."

So how renewable really is it?  Or is it just hot air from politicians?!
