Andrews taking Victoria down the same path as South Australia

Tuesday, 14 March 2017

Having plunged South Australia into darkness with its ideological renewables policy, SA Labor is left with no choice but to build a taxpayer-funded fossil fuel power station, as no private investor would go near a knee-jerk Labor run state. 

South Australians are now being forced to pay more tax to fix the state’s energy crisis, which will leave them with the highest priced power in Australia. 

With Daniel Andrews rushing to follow South Australia's lead with a renewable energy target of 40% and a policy to close Hazelwood, Victorians can soon expect to be paying even more for electricity.

Australians are learning that you can either have reliable and more affordable electricity, or a Labor Government: but you can't have both.
