Energy & Mining


Preamble


Policy failures over the past 30 years have left Victoria struggling to meet its energy requirements, the green move-ment is solely to blame. As the cost of living rises, families are needing ever increasing support just to heat and cool their homes. SFFP wants a back-to-basics approach to how our energy is produced.


Position


• Support the investigation of nuclear power as a safe, viable, cheap and generationally transformational alternative to power generation


• Promote new power plants using clean coal technology


• Oppose in-ground carbon sequestration that locks up agricultural land for no other uses


• Support a removal the moratorium on conventional gas extraction


• Scrutinise new power infrastructure that impacts agricultural land


• Push government to implement a local gas reserve system, forcing gas companies to reserve enough gas for local use at the lowest price


• Push government to upgrade our power distribution networks to reduce the chances of bushfires due to infrastruc-ture failure
