Victorian Energy Efficiency Target funding axed by Victorian Government

The recent announcement by the Victorian Government of the axing of the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) scheme, which provides free energy efficient light bulbs and smart timers to households, is just another example of this Government’s unwillingness to tackle climate change if it does not suit their main backers, the big coal-fired generators, which provide most of the State’s electricity at present. 322 more words

In reply to David Camilleri’s letter to the Latrobe Valley Express on Feb 13th 2014 titled “Power Stations Here to Stay”. He scoffed that wind dropped out when it was most needed in the recent heatwave, I would like to point out that under the present electricity supply grid on the eastern seaboard, new renewables such as wind and solar have not even penetrated to 10% of the average supply and as such are not yet providing the critical mass. 449 more words
