I never thought I would live in a Queensland where nearly 500 families a week are having their power cut off because they can’t pay the bill. But it is happening under this misguided Labor Government which wants 50 percent of our power generated from expensive renewable resources like wind and solar energy within a few years.
This ridiculous target must be dumped and the Government should immediately commit to a new coal fired power station in the north of the state to help resolve the issue.
The One Nation vision for Queensland is not having up to 25,000 families going without power each year because of the cost. We want Queensland to boom again.
Our plan is to not take the billion dollar plus annual dividend the Government ‘confiscates’ from the power companies. This will enable power companies to cut prices to the consumer by up to 20 percent.
We have also given a commitment that in the next Parliament, we will ensure a major new coal fired power station is built in the north of the State.
