Members Statements - Western Victoria power capacity

Victorian Parliament - 5 June 2018 - Ms KEALY — I ask the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change to urgently address critical capacity issues on the high‑voltage powerline to western Victoria. The line is almost at capacity and this is restricting the ability to attract billions of dollars of local business investment in renewable energy opportunities in the region. Rather than stubbornly focusing on the Victorian renewable energy target, the minister must instead address this critical electricity capacity issue for western Victoria to allow vital business investment and jobs growth in our local region. I would like to congratulate —

The DEPUTY SPEAKER — The member for Buninyong.
