Victorian households and businesses are more reliant on gas – the most expensive source of power in our energy network – than any other state.

It used to be cheap and abundant, but things have changed. As gas prices have risen so have our energy bills.

Gas is a polluting fuel that is wrecking our climate. And it pollutes the air inside our homes too. Research backed by the Asthma Foundation shows burning gas for cooking and heating can be as dangerous as second-hand cigarette smoke, causing heart disease and around 12 percent of childhood asthma.

With the right incentives and support we can keep our homes warm, heat our hot water and cook with efficient appliances powered by renewable energy, enjoying clean air and lower bills.

Our next state government should help all Victorian households – whether we own our homes or rent – replace gas heating and hot water systems with heat pumps, solar systems and batteries.
