A clean energy future is closer than you think

While the Baillieu Government may be backing away from a clean energy future, the state still remains in a great position to shake off the dominance of coal-fired power.

Amidst the negativity – at last some good news on energy. Last week, Planning Minister Mathew Guy gave planning approval for the 460 megawatt first stage of a new AGL gas-fired power station at Tarrone in Victoria's western district. It will share a new transmission terminal with AGL's 420 megawatt McArthur wind farm, which is already under construction.

This brings Victoria yet another step towards its goal of a greener energy supply and losing its title as the worst polluting state in Australia for greenhouse gas emissions.
