If Victorian taxpayers are paying hundreds of millions of dollars to subsidise this, then it’s not really cheap energy at all.
In fact, it means Victorian taxpayers are paying for this extra electricity twice.
Having helped to push up electricity prices by forcing the closure of Hazelwood, Daniel Andrews is now looking to taxpayers to help buy his way out of political trouble.
Electricity prices have gone up around $500 a household under Daniel Andrews, but a few months out from an election he suddenly claims he can fix it.
This is a desperate Premier and a panicked government. Daniel Andrews has had four years to fix electricity prices and 75 days out from the election he says he has an idea but can’t or won’t say what it will cost taxpayers.
