“I am very proud of what we have achieved through our renewable energy policies,” she added.

‘This year we are on track to surpass 20 per cent of power generation from renewables and the number of jobs supported has more than doubled.

‘It’s a great story here in Queensland. This has involved $6 billion in investment and 5,300 construction jobs to build 3,240 megawatts of renewable energy capacity.’
