The Green plan to reduce carbon emissions

By 21 September 2012 0

The Greens have announced what they’d like to see done about carbon emissions:

The ACT Greens today announced their action plan to reduce Canberra’s greenhouse gas emissions by 40% in 2020.

“By taking steps today to reduce the ACT’s reliance on fossil fuels and cut our greenhouse gas emissions, we can ensure that Canberrans have affordable bills, comfortable homes, equitable access to clean energy and a high quality public transport system,” said Greens Climate & Energy Spokesperson Shane Rattenbury.

Key components of the plan are:
– a legislative requirement for all ACT energy providers to source 90% of their electricity from renewables in 2020
– a guaranteed payment for households and businesses installing PV
– minimum energy efficiency standards for rental properties, and
– a review of the Territory Plan to ensure all future development meets the 40% target.
