Investment and jobs in South Australia’s low carbon future

Premier Jay Weatherill has launched a landmark plan which sets out how the state will achieve $10 billion investment in low carbon generation by 2025.

Making the announcement ahead of leaving tonight for the COP21 Climate Conference in Paris, Mr Weatherill said South Australia’s Low Carbon Investment Plan is a major step towards establishing Adelaide as the world’s first carbon neutral city.

Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Tom Koutsantonis said the State Government is aiming for $10 billion of investment in low carbon energy generation by 2025 and 50 per cent of electricity production to be generated by renewable energy by 2025.
