Watch your energy bills continue to skyrocket if there’s an Andrews Labor Greens Government

Tuesday, 10 July 2018

Victorian households and businesses will be dreading the thought of the energy price pain if there’s a future Labor Greens coalition.

Acting Greens Leader Ellen Sandell has stated “we need to be developing and implementing a coal closure plan now” and called for a “transition to 100% renewable energy in the next ten years, including phasing out coal-fired power stations”.

Daniel Andrews’ pursuit of a 40% renewable energy target forced the closure of Hazelwood, causing energy bills to jump by $300 and left Victoria reliant on power from other states just to meet our own needs.

This election is one of two choices, a stable Liberal Nationals coalition that will get the ideology out of energy or a Labor Greens coalition that won’t stop until every Victoria coal power station is shutdown.

One thing is now clear, under a coalition of chaos from Andrews Labor and the Greens it will be lights out for Victoria.
