The Senate has supported a motion endorsing South Australia’s renewable energy target, despite efforts from the Turnbull government to talk it down.
“The Senate has endorsed South Australia’s renewable energy target and the growth of wind and solar in our state,” Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said.
“The fact that the government voted against this motion tells you all you need to know about their contempt for jobs and renewable energy in South Australia.
“This is an industry that has brought thousands of jobs to our state and helped South Australia to lead the nation in tackling dangerous global warming.
“Our state deserves better than to be used as a political plaything of the conservative Turnbull government in their ongoing war against renewable energy.”
