Green Power

  • SEFE managers describe their proposed electricity as “Green Power", but it is questionable whether legally they can use this term.

  • Country Energy has already rejected electricity generated from native forest wood for inclusion in its Green power schemes.

  • Extract from the Green Power website (“a joint initiative of ACT, NSW, SA, QLD, VIC and WA government agencies”)

. ………only sustainable plantation forestry sources are acceptable under the Green Power Program - GreenPower is not sourced from old growth forests or regrowth native forests.
