The Greens have announced our plan for Power Victoria: a public retailer with cheaper electricity for all Victorians.
Privatisation of our electricity system has failed. When Kennett handed over our electricity system to private corporations to make a profit, it made electricity more expensive, less reliable and kept it dirty.

The Victorian Greens have called on the the Andrews Labor Government to transition Victoria away from polluting, expensive
gas, as reports today show wind and solar projects will soon have the capacity to power more than 2.9 million homes.
The State Government recently announced $64.6m to redevelop the State Netball and Hockey Centre, with a particular focus on women's sport.
This Saturday, you'll have the chance to ask questions and have your say about the redevelopment.
Project team members from various stakeholders (Netball Victoria, Hockey Victoria, Development Victoria, Sport and Rec Victoria and more) will be in attendance to answer questions from the public and seek input of the design.

Just this year, the Andrews Government has committed to several projects that will extract more fossil fuels from the ground, accelerating climate change. These include giving the greenlight for more gas exploration and a hairbrain skeme to convert brown coal into hydrogen.Read more
