The Age’s Alan Moran attacks Vic gov. actions on windmills, but poses some pretty wobbly points


It’s all about getting Green preferences: Moreover, the measures
represent a policy invasion by the Victorian Government, which is
muscling in on an area of Commonwealth responsibility. The upside for
the Labor Party is that efficiency sapping energy measures will help
cement Green preferences which might deliver Labor control of the State
Upper House. But $1 billion and a legacy of hopelessly uneconomic
windmills is a high price to charge the Victorian people for the
privilege of representing them.
