This year, the people of NSW have faced twin crises – enduring a horror bushfire season fuelled by climate change, and devastatingly high unemployment rates in the wake of COVID-19.
In response, the NSW Government has unveiled one of the most ambitious climate plans in the country, which will drive down power prices and pollution, create much-needed jobs and deliver huge economic benefits to the state.
This is the sort of leadership and vision that we need to see replicated across all Governments at all levels.
Add your name to our petition now to congratulate the NSW Government on their smart investments, and let’s drum up massive community support to get policies that create jobs and solve long-term problems like climate change implemented right across the country.
In its Energy Infrastructure Roadmap, the NSW Government has opened the door for NSW to become a renewable energy superpower, outlining a pathway to transition the state to renewable energy by:
- Building Australia’s first renewable energy zones in Central West and New England,
- Unlocking $32 billion worth of private investment in regional energy infrastructure,
- Creating 6300 construction jobs and 2800 ongoing jobs by 2030, mostly in regional NSW,
- Cutting power prices in NSW by ramping up renewable energy, the cheapest form of new energy generation.
Whilst there is always room for improvement across environment and energy policy areas, today, we think the Liberal National NSW Government deserve a pat on the back for showing the rest of the country, and the Federal Government, how it’s done.
It’s a win-win plan that’s received bi-partisan support, and will set NSW up for the future.
