Queensland

Queensland is one of the three states that still has publicly owned power generation, transmission and distribution components of the electricity grid.

Recently, this has caused widespread controversy as the Queensland Government was accused of gouging electricity prices to raise revenue.

This has been catastrophic for families, farmers and industry particularly in North Queensland as these higher prices have been passed on to them.

Construction of a state-of-the-art high efficiency low emission (HELE) power plant would deliver competition and lower prices for families and businesses in North Queensland.

With the introduction of the State Government’s 50% renewable energy target, Queensland risks repeating the same mistakes as South Australia in rushing to renewables while turning its back on huge coal reserves in its own backyard.
