Energy and Environment

I will prioritize policies that take action on the high cost of energy and promote the protection of our environment through clean energy technologies and energy efficiency incentives for homeowners and businesses.

  • Enhance funding for energy efficiency incentives and alternate energy technologies available to homeowners. These programs will be expanded to cover more of the cost to homeowners for the installation of appliances and energy systems, lowering the cost of power over time and reducing carbon emissions.
  • Reduce the cost of power by leveraging hydro generated electricity with clean energy generation to offset low water levels and maximise hydro efficiency.
  • Undertake an energy audit of government owned facilities and undertake energy efficient retrofits to improve efficiency and lower operating costs.
  • Installation of co-generation energy systems that provide both heat and power in communities dependent on diesel generation.
