25 March 2013
(Notice of Motion, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)
Mr Alex Greenwich to move —
That this House:
- Notes that Earth Hour was held on 23 March and is a global event that started in Sydney.
- Commends the many businesses, residents, councils and governments which took part in the event.
- Notes the three per cent drop in energy use in Sydney's central business district during Earth Hour, equivalent to turning off half a million energy-saving light bulbs for an hour.
- Calls on the Government to support increased use of renewable energy through a strong legislated renewable energy target, a sustainable solar bonus scheme and removing restrictions on wind farms.
