The NSW Liberals and Nationals are planning to privatise the publicly owned electricity network including companies you might know such as Ausgrid, Endeavour Energy, Essential Energy and TransGrid.
Currently these companies provide the people of NSW with $1.7 Billion every year to fund other public services. If privatised this money will be lost meaning public services like out Hospitals and Schools will face future cuts.
The Liberals and Nationals electricity privatisation will also mean higher prices, lower reliability and local job losses.
To Mike Baird, NSW Premier: This petition of NSW residents opposes any sale or lease of the publicly owned NSW electricity network. We call on you to abort your privatisation plans and maintain full public ownership of Ausgrid, Endeavour Energy, Essential Energy, TransGrid and Networks NSW.
