Coal power push from South West CCI

THE South West Chambers of Commerce and Industry has called for coal power to be used in the next base-load power station, reflecting the region’s strength in this resource.

SWCCI president Rolf Stene said a coal-based solution offered security in power supplies to Perth and the South West and a decision needed to be made shortly.

“A coal power station located next to the coal mines in Collie will maintain a balance of fuel, between coal and gas, for secure power generation,” he said.

“The State cannot afford to end up with all its generation dependent on one fuel.”

Mr Stene said he was concerned about apparent delays in the process to determine the next base-load power station.
