Daniel Andrews’ reckless actions are driving the owners of Yallourn, one of Victoria’s largest power plants towards closure, further driving up energy bills and risking the jobs of hundreds of Victorians.
Victorians have already suffered through massive increases in household electricity bills under Daniel Andrews, and not only are bills set to skyrocket even higher but Victorians will face an increased risk of more power blackouts.
Victorian households who are trying to manage their budget are going to pay the price for Labor’s irresponsible energy policy.
The Liberal Nationals acknowledge that renewable energy will play an important role in powering Victoria into the future, but Daniel Andrews must make sure that this transition to renewable energy is reliable and affordable for all Victorians.
