WA Labor has had a change of heart over its renewables target.

Interesting. However, this may only amount to short term pre-election posturing given that the current Treasurer and Energy Minister, Mike Nahan suggested that "WA’s daytime electricity needs would be completely generated by solar PV within 10 years." And there is nothing to suggest this is not still the case given that West Australian's installed solar panels at a record rate in 2016.
