Game over for HRL coal-fired power station
Federal funding withdrawn from polluting power station
Friday, 27 July 2012
Environment Victoria has this afternoon declared a major win in the campaign to stop a proposed new coal-fired power station from going ahead in Victoria.
The group has strongly welcomed the Federal Government’s announcement that they are withdrawing the Howard-era $100 million Commonwealth grant to HRL after the company failed to meet the conditions of the grant money for the sixth time.
The company was depending on the Federal Government grant to leverage private investment in the project, but had failed to attract financial support.
