ez2view 7.3.4 Release Notes

Region schematic widgets have been updated to include new stations

A number of new stations have been comissioned and a few decomissioned since we last updated the regional schematics. Each of the region schematics have been updated in ez2view v7.3.4 to include all of the stations currently generating in the NEM. Some of the station names have been shortened to ensure the names are still legible at smaller resolution.

Of particular note is the inclusion of Hornsdale Power Reserve with the new fuel type of Battery Storage.

We want your input …

With the number of new generation projects in the pipeline keeping the schematics up to date and fitting all of the stations in the available space is an ongoing problem for ez2view. We are working to enhance the region scematics to provide greater layout flexibility and configurability as well as making it easier to keep the schematics up to date.

If you would like to have your say and contribute to the new region schematic widget please contact us: feedback@global-roam.com.
