SHOCK - Abbott says yes!

Legislation to allow the federal government to implement minimum regulatory standards for the energy efficiency and greenhouse emissions of energy consuming equipment has received bi-partisan support. This chart of the week shows why this is a clear win for consumers.

In rare piece of bi-partisanship, legislation was passed yesterday that enables the Federal Government to implement national greenhouse emissions and energy minimum standards (GEMS) and information for energy consuming equipment and appliances.

Back in June Climate Spectator explained how this GEMS legislation was likely to make a big difference to energy bills, $5.2b according to the Government, and asked the question – can Abbott say yes to reducing energy bills?

Turns out that he can.
