The Member for the New South Wales south east seat of Monaro has accused the ACT Government of using the region as a junkyard to meet its renewable energy target.

John Barilaro has slammed the territory’s plan to source energy from solar and wind-farms in New South Wales in a bid to reach a 90 per cent green energy target by 2020.

Mr Barilaro says he is opposed to wind-farms in general because they rely heavily on Government subsidies and divide communities.

He says wind-farms are a controversial topic on the Monaro, and if the ACT wants them, it should put the facilities on its side of the border.

“For the ACT to just make a, what I would believe is an irresponsible and self-indulgent energy policy that actually involves windfarms being put on the New South Wales side of the border, as I say you know, the ACT’s junkyard, now it’s irresponsible and I don’t support it,” Mr Barilaro said.
