Treasurer Must Take Some Responsibility for Hydro Woes

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader and Treasury spokesperson

The Treasurer can try to blame previous governments for the parlous situation Hydro Tasmania is in, but the fact is that on his watch and under his dividend policy, the gas which should have been used to fire up Tamar Valley to protect storages was being sold on the mainland while Hydro was frantically exporting to the mainland.

In the middle of a drought last year, Hydro Tasmania was trading gas - which should have been firing up the Tamar Valley Power Station - on the mainland spot market.
