Let renewables compete without subsidies

Senator Leyonhjelm explains his motion to remove the Renewable Energy Target, which forces energy retailers to offset cheaper electricity by purchasing renewable energy.

Senator Leyonhjelm argues that if renewables are becoming so cost effective, than they should have no problem surviving on the open market.

Sadly, this motion got rejected by the major parties, including the Nationals who said they would remove the subsidies the previous weekend!
