(Mar. 12, 2017) — We don’t have an electricity supply crisis – we have an energy policy crisis.

Vote-seeking politicians with little understanding of markets, engineering or energy have passed costly laws, shuffled a pack of complex regulations, imposed discriminatory taxes and subsidies, set unrealistic targets, interfered in markets, and imposed death-by-delay on real energy explorers and developers.

Australia once had the world’s cheapest and most reliable electricity (before politicians became green socialists and started interfering). Now we have expensive electricity and much of it is unreliable, unpredictable and intermittent.

Let’s try free enterprise in the energy market before we all freeze in the dark.
