Background information

In Queensland we have five Government Owned Companies (Public companies) in the electricity sector.

Two in Generation – CS and Stanwell, Two in Distribution – Ergon and Energex, One in Transmission – Powerlink

In the Northern Territory we have one Government Owned Corporation in the electricity sector, Power and Water Corporation (PWC)

A long term lease is Privatisation, once it is gone it's lost forever to the public

On October 7, 2014 the LNP State Government confirmed that it will Privatise 100% of our electricity assets if it wins the next election due no later than June 2015, this is a massive betrayal of trust. Remember back in April last year when Premier Newman said poles and wires assets would be safe? He lied, they are now all on the chopping block. CS Energy, Stanwell, Ergon, Energex, Powerlink, sections of Sunwater, Townsville to Mt Isa rail line and the ports of Townsville and Gladstone are all set for long term leases that will see them effectively sold off like South Australia did with its electricity networks back in the late 90's
