The Bankstown Greens oppose the Iemma Government's proposal to privatise the state owned electricity retailers and to lease out the generators. Such action would have disastrous social, economic, and environmental consequences. For more information, visit John Kaye's campaign page against power privatisation

John Kaye
Greens NSW MP


Dear Member of the NSW Legislative Council,

I ask you to oppose any attempt by Premier Iemma and Treasurer Costa to privatise NSW's electricity retailers and lease out the state's generators.

The government is acting without a mandate. Morris Iemma ruled out privatisation before the last election. Now he is claiming he does not even need legislation to make it happen.

Privatisation will lead to higher bills, fewer jobs and reduced services. It will make it harder for NSW to cut its CO2 emissions, at a time when the NSW government should instead be using its control over the electricity industry to transition us to a clean energy future. Better energy efficiencies are the solution which will protect the environment, and keep the lights on.

I urge you to represent the views of your constituents on this important matter and oppose electricity privatisation.
