One in three chance of blackouts under Daniel Andrews

There is a one in three chance of blackouts this summer according to reports today.

This is completely unacceptable that when Victorians are paying record power prices we have an extreme chance of blackouts under Daniel Andrews.

Daniel Andrews shutdown Hazelwood removing 22% of power generation from Victoria because of his massive tax hikes.

Since then, power prices have skyrocketed and our ability to keep the lights on in Victoria continues to be questioned by the Australian Energy Market Operator.

Victorians paying a premium for power will be rightly concerned that under Daniel Andrews there’s a one in three chance the lights will go out.

Only the Liberal Nationals have a plan to ease the cost of living pressures on Victorian households.
