The Productivity Commission's draft electricity networks report was a mixed bag for the Greens, given that privatisation appears to be the best way to reduce emissions.

The Productivity Commission's draft report on how electricity networks should be regulated is out today, and contains both good and bad news for the Greens.

The good news is that the report clearly backs the Gillard government's repeated claim that the deal they struck with the Greens in creating the 'Clean Energy Future' package – the 'carbon tax' – is not the main driver of higher electricity costs.
