Just as the Morrison Government finds itself stranded internationally on its weak commitment to climate action, the NSW Liberal Government has today exposed how isolated the Morrison government is on renewable energy.
The Liberal NSW Government has announced plans to support 12GW of new renewable energy generation, firmed by 2GW of storage like batteries and pumped hydro.
Confirming yet again renewable energy means lower energy bills, modelling of the NSW plan concludes this renewables investment will lower average household bills by $130 per year, with small businesses set to save $440 per year.
The Liberal National Government has had 22 energy policies in the last eight years, Scott Morrison and Angus Taylor remain committed to Tony Abbott’s anti-renewables ideology and all they have to show for it are higher electricity prices and higher emissions.
As more states move to a renewable energy future Labor’s plan to Rewire the Nation will modernise and rebuild our grid. Our plan will drive job creation, cheaper power prices and the reliable energy our country needs to power industry into the future.
