Peter Walsh MP:
Victoria's Plan to Go It Alone will Push Up Power Bills

Labor has made a mess of Victoria’s energy network, leaving us with an unreliable supply and sent prices skyrocketing

Dear Editor,

Victorian households will bear the cost of the Andrews Labor Government’s move to go-it-alone on energy projects.

Labor has made a mess of Victoria’s energy network, leaving us with an unreliable supply and sent prices skyrocketing.

In a panicked attempt to paper over the cracks, Labor’s Energy Minister has introduced changes to State Parliament that will give the Minister the power to bypass critical checks and balances applied by the national energy framework.

The framework exists to ensure the nation’s energy infrastructure, and new projects, work together to provide a reliable and affordable power supply.

Victoria going it alone risks leaving Victorian households with a more unstable and unreliable power supply and even higher power bills.

Victorians are paying the price for the mess Labor has created in our energy network
