Greens energy spokesperson Ellen Sandell says:
"We welcome the Government's renewables plan as a good first step, but we will need bolder action to make the transition to a clean energy economy. It's great we will see more wind farms built in Victoria, but if we are really serious about addressing climate change the Government must also urgently replace our dirtiest coal-fired power stations like Hazelwood."

"This renewables announcement is a good start, but it will only make a real difference if it is backed up by a plan to end our toxic dependence on coal. We urgently need to replace Hazelwood and transition our state to renewable energy."
