NSW homes and businesses deserve secure and affordable energy sources.
NSW homes and businesses deserve secure and affordable energy sources. Whether that energy comes from electricity and gas, or renewable energy, our state needs reliable energy to run.
In 2011, the Christian Democratic Party was able to use its position, holding the balance of power to ensure that 160,000 solar rebate contracts across New South Wales would not be compromised by the O'Farrell Government's decision to reduce the rebate. To his credit, Mr. O'Farrell and his Government backed off on that occasion after listening to CDP.
When it was brought to my attention that 160,000 families would be affected by this decision, I knew I had to bring this to the Government and raise my voice on behalf of these families, many of these were retiree’s.
In 2018 I chaired an inquiry into electricity supply, demand and prices in NSW, and if re-elected I will continue to use our position to fight for the people of NSW to ensure our families and businesses can afford and access reliable energy, as well as looking to our future and supporting the growth of affordable renewable energy sources.
