Labor needs to come clean on energy

Enough is enough.

It’s time for Rebecca White or the leader in waiting David O’Byrne to stand up for Tasmania and support the National Energy Guarantee.

We know the Greens don’t like Hydro and wind farms, despite being 100% renewable and it seems Labor is more interested in standing with their Green colleagues than standing up for Tasmania.

It’s not too late for Rebecca White  to pick up the phone and get the Labor states to support a nationally consistent energy policy which provides certainty and  rewards reliable, low emission generation.

The NEG is good for Tasmanian jobs and puts more downward pressure on power prices.

Labor’s failure to act on energy is a slap in the face to all Tasmanians who stand to benefit from the nation-leading reform. But that’s what you get from a Labor party.
