The LNP have today slammed the Palaszczuk Labor Government for wasting more taxpayers' money in fighting the Supreme Court's declaration that their flawed solar farm laws were invalid.
LNP Shadow Minister for Energy Michael Hart said that Labor were more interested in backing the union bosses than supporting more renewable energy.
"This appeal is a blatant waste of taxpayers' money," Mr Hart said.
"Labor's new solar farm laws would have cost jobs and increased electricity bills.
"It's clear that Annastacia Palaszczuk is all talk and no action when it comes to renewable projects.
"We need to encourage more renewable generation, not less – to drive down electricity bills.
"Labor's flawed laws would have cost Maryborough Solar over $2.6 million more for one solar farm project alone," Mr Hart said.
LNP Shadow Industrial Relations Minister Jarrod Bleijie said the Court decision was clear-cut and Labor should be going back to the drawing board.
"This is just another example of how the Palaszczuk Labor Government is owned lock, stock and barrel by the union movement," Mr Bleijie said.
"The Minister tried to re-define what constitutes electrical equipment and she was basically laughed out of the Supreme Court.
"She has tried to make new laws outside her power and has been caught out.
"This was never about safety and always about the ETU campaign against renewable energy projects," Mr Bleijie said.
