Today is the day.

The Daniel Andrews Labor Government will today, have the opportunity to make energy in Victoria cheaper and more reliable by agreeing to the National Energy Guarantee.

The National Energy Guarantee is backed by business and supported by modelling from the independent Energy Security Board. It will lower household bills by $550 a year and strengthen the reliability of the system.

Deputy Leader of The Nationals and Senator for Victoria, Bridget McKenzie said “Since the closure of Hazelwood power station in 2017, energy prices have risen by up to 300% in the State of Victoria. The people I represent and the regional communities I am passionate about simply cannot afford for them to go up any higher.”

“Daniel Andrews has the opportunity today to make a difference to the people of Victoria. He needs to listen to the evidence and stop playing petty politics with this serious issue.

“Lower power prices, more reliability, investment and new job opportunities - that’s what the National Energy Guarantee will provide.

“If we don’t all come together on this, the people of Australia will be the ones who miss out. Our country needs a forward thinking plan on energy and I believe we have put that plan on the table.

The Victorian Labor Governments has so far refused to agree to the National Energy Guarantee hopefully today they come to their senses.
