ADAM GILES AND THE CLP CAN’T BE TRUSTED ON POWER PRICES
ADAM GILES AND THE CLP CAN’T BE TRUSTED ON POWER PRICES

21 July 2016 - Territory Labor Leader, Michael Gunner, said that Adam Giles should stop his deceitful attacks on renewable energy and admit his modelling has nothing to do with Labor’s 50% renewable target by 2030.

His deceitful 400% figure is based on:

  • An immediate switch to between 70-100% solar in Alice Springs – this is not Labor policy
  • The need for 7 days back up battery storage in Alice Springs – this is not Labor policy
  • Not having the capacity to utilise gas power energy – this is not Labor’s policy

“Labor has a proud record of supporting the gas industry, and will continue to do so if elected in August,” Mr Gunner said.

“But we also recognise that investing in renewables creates jobs and will lead to lower power prices for Territorians.

“Adam Giles and the CLP can’t be trusted on power prices and Territorians haven’t forgotten the betrayal of their 30% increases.

“Adam Giles and the CLP will sell our power water assets if they are re-elected and we know that this will lead to further price rises.

“Labor will release our policy to sensibly transition to more renewable energy in the coming weeks.”
