More gas not needed

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.

"These figures prove that Victoria has the resources to go 100 per cent renewable without the need to jeopardise the environment with further gas exploration, but Labor has not got the message.

"By opening up half of Victoria's pristine coast to gas drilling, Labor is not just doing damage to the environment, but diverting investment away from renewable energy."

The Victorian Greens are calling for an indefinite moratorium on onshore gas drilling and an end to new offshore exploration.
