Renewable energy target of 50pc reached early in South Australia


Renewable energy production in South Australia has hit the state's target almost eight years ahead of schedule.

The Government's target is for 50 per cent of the state's energy to be supplied from renewable sources by 2025, and in the past year it has been reported 53 per cent of its energy has come from sun and wind-based sources.

South Australian Energy Minister Tom Koutsantonis described the increase as a "good thing" while also attacking the Opposition, claiming they do not have an energy policy.

Congratulations South Australia for showing what leadrship and commitment can do.

Key Points

  • Target is for 50 per cent of the state's energy to be supplied from renewable sources by 2025
  • In the past year it has been reported 53 per cent of its energy has come from sun and wind-based sources
  • "It means we are not only leading the nation but probably the world. Renewable energy is the future."
  • State Opposition Leader Steven Marshall told ABC Radio Adelaide he was not impressed by the latest reports
  • The simple fact is there is already excessive generation capacity in South Australia
