Changes to RET Will Cost 450 Tasmanian Jobs

The changes proposed in the Abbott Government’s Renewable Energy Target Review Report will jeopardise 450 Tasmanian jobs. “Tony Abbott wants the RET scrapped, which will put an end to the Tasmanian PV solar industry and leave 450 Tasmanians without a job,” Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Environment Senator Lisa Singh said. “I have joined more than… Read More »
