People in the regions are “concerned” about the price of power


Resource Minister Keith Pete says people in the regions are “concerned” about the price of power.

“They know that that big coal-fired power plant on the road provides a lot of jobs and a lot of economic traffic in their local area, and it has kept the lights on for decades,” Pete told Sky News presenter Chris Kenny.

“And he may do it in the future, and so we’ve taken a technological rather than a tax approach, and others have a different view, but soon we’ll see how much it can cost.”

He said he believed that the “nuclear debate” would take place in the next term, but it was a conversation that would have to be “approached gently.”

“I think we need to see common sense in these approaches, and something needs to be done.”
