Ho! Ho! Ho! you've got one up on me - have you.
You are right though - What's our option? You lot down under are consuming all of our sunshine.
If we go 100% nuclear we will have a waste disposal problem, we could ship it to OZ or launch it into outer-space - 'To infinity and beyond'
We have huge off-shore wind farms. Perhaps we could make more use of tidal flow systems - at least the tides are predictable.
I took this picture a couple of days ago, it is about five miles out in the Thames estuary off Margate. Funnily, it is normally barely visible due to mist, heat haze and generally murky weather, but always appears when capturing shipping pics in that part of the estuary. I took a series of this location - there are lots of 'em.

Wouldn't want to be a seabird dodging those spinning arms, would you. It is an issue though. There are more and more of us consuming more and more electricity. Right now I'd give you as much sunshine as you want. We've had a heat wave (inland from Darwin) for the last two weeks, 39-42C. I'm sick of it (literally--I am about to have surgery to remove skin cancers from too much exposure to it) and have had no rain since April. Just hanging' out for the wet season but we have at least a week more of this stinking devil's armpit weather to look forward to.
