To the Minister of Energy and Resources, 

I want to see Victoria take real and urgent action on climate change. Please follow through with Labor's 2010 promise and replace Hazelwood with clean energy, while creating local jobs in mine rehabilitation and supporting a community-led transition for workers.

Why is this important?

Hazelwood power station is Australia's dirtiest power station and one of the most polluting in the world.

Now is our best chance to close it, because the national energy regulator reports we have over 8000 megawatts of surplus energy in the grid. That's the equivalent of 5 Hazelwood power plants of unnecessary energy. It's clear - we don't need Hazelwood any more.

Closing Hazelwood will create jobs. With Government support, workers and communities in the Latrobe Valley can be involved in the rehabilitation of Hazelwood mine and power plant. Mine rehabilitation alone would create 450 jobs for more than a decade and a billion-dollar economic stimulus for the region.
