Oh @AngusTaylorMP 🤦🏼‍♂️

A thread (of gold)!⚡️#auspoI

Here’s you - 6 months ago, as our Energy Minister! - launching an off grid, solar powered, battery powered school. Yup. You!


If the video doesn’t jog your memory, here’s your own quote from it...
“Put simply, this is a classroom that has solar cells on its roof. It’s got a battery and that means it doesn’t have to connect up to the grid.
The reason this is so important is it delivers very significant savings.”

Couldn’t agree more, and apparently...
So do you, as you issued this press release on your own website as Minister environment.gov.au/minister/taylo…

You even quantified the savings as $3k/classroom/year and a $30k connection fee!

And then you went and stole @ScottMorrisonMP’s favourite line about the sun not shining...
And I quote you Minister @AngusTaylorMP

“This project highlights the benefits of combining renewable energy and storage to ensure energy is available when it is needed, not just when the sun shines.”

We’re again in total agreement...
So was @australian apparently ... theaustralian.com.au/search-results… although their article and video are now strangely 404s for me. Perhaps they changed their mind? Like you did? ...
Oh & like your EV charger investment about face... your government supported them with our taxpayer dollars. Your PR says you paid for half of it!

You literally “turned a school into a power station.”

Was that a bad use of government funds or a good one? Which is it Minister?
