Power Victoria

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.

Electricity is an essential service that every Victorian needs to live a good life. We need an electricity system run for people, not profit.

Quick Facts

  • Electricity privatisation has failed
  • Prices have risen by 170% since 1995
  • 30% of our bills are profit and marketing
  • Private companies are making $400 million a year selling overpriced electricity

The Greens Plan

  • Create Power Victoria, a public electricity retailer
  • Save households $320 a year
  • Provide Victorians with electricity from clean, renewable sources
