Responded By: Hon Geoff Wilson MP on 17/02/2009

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that we, the undersigned, vehemently support Powerlines Action Group Eumundi Inc. in its stance of technical issues and opportunities associated with providing an alternative 'sustainable energy' supply solution to Energex for the proposed Eerwah Valley Spur and the longer term supply options from sustainable energy solutions across the Sunshine Coast including demand management as well as new generation capacity. PAGE's suggestions address the short to medium term needs of the electricity network, while seeking viable and sustainable long-term solutions that are more in keeping with Global and local community views. Your petitioners therefore request the House to: 1. Direct the office of the Hon Minister for Mines and Energy Mr Geoff Wilson to provide a response on latest forecast demand for energy based upon population growth and projected commercial/industrial development on the Sunshine Coast that justifies the rationale for the proposed Powerlink Woolooga to Cooroy South Transmission Line and Substation Project. 2. Direct the office of the Hon Minister for Mines and Energy Mr Geoff Wilson to provide policy of the State Government with respect to future energy requirements of the N. Sunshine Coast and commercial viability of alternatives to the provision of centralised energy and in particular the Powerlink proposed Woolooga to Cooroy South Transmission Line and Substation Project.
