HAD ENOUGH OF RISING POWER BILLS?
TAKE ACTION FOR VICTORIA TODAY
To Premier Andrews:
We are proud of our state. But the rising cost of living is hurting hardworking Victorian families.
Electricity is a major cost and we have worked to be more energy efficient and use less.
Despite this, our electricity prices are reportedly set to increase 40% over the next few years. http://www.theage.com.au/business/energy/gas-surge-after-hazelwood-closure-sends-electricity-prices-skyward-20170516-gw5r9r
While Victoria used to be an energy powerhouse, we are now reliant on importing electricity from New South Wales to power our homes, schools, and communities.
Experts have repeatedly warned that your extreme energy target threatens to make Victoria the new South Australia, with blackouts, job losses and businesses leaving.
Other states have seen the warning signs and are responding. Federal Labor has abandoned its formal 50% renewable energy target so we therefore call on you to end Victoria's 40% renewable energy target by 2025.
Victoria needs a sensible energy mix that keeps our lights on, our costs down and protects our environment. Without it, us hardworking Victorian families will pay the price.
