NSW Greens announce energy policy to ‘decarbonise the economy’

Abigail Boyd, Greens spokesperson for treasury and energy, said the proposals would "deliver affordable renewable energy for every household."

"We must take back control over our power supply and ensure that we are never again at the mercy of the private market for our energy needs."

Cath Blakely, Greens candidate for the seat of Wollongong, said the plan "will immediately provide cost-of-living relief by lowering power bills, and lays out a plan for electrification by getting one million homes off gas."

"Energy bills are skyrocketing across the state, plunging people into energy poverty, but neither NSW Labor nor the Coalition have any credible plan to reduce energy costs for households."
