In a press conference this morning South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill outlined a plan for his state to fix their current energy crisis.

If implemented, the 550 million dollar plan would give control back to South Australia from the largely privitized National Engergy Market.

Weatherill hopes the new plan will prevent any further blackouts in the region and keep prices down,  but Federal Environment and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg has said the new plan will drive prices up across the country.
