The Clean Energy Council celebrates Tasmania's incredible milestone of becoming 100 per cent net self-sufficient in renewable energy.
Tasmania has long been Australia's renewable energy leader, said Clean Energy Council Chief Executive, Kane Thornton.
"Tasmania has led the way when it comes to effecting change in Australia's energy mix, and today's milestone is well ahead of the original schedule of 2022. This considerable achievement highlights the Tasmanian Government's policy leadership on renewable energy, which continues with the legislating of a visionary 200 per cent renewable target by 2040.
"The clean energy industry has responded in kind through investment, which in turn, will play a critical role in local Tasmanian economies creating employment opportunities now and into the future."
