Muscat says government energy policy is not credible
Labour leader Joseph Muscat said today that the government was no longer remotely credible on its energy policy.
Speaking on One Radio this morning, Dr Muscat said Malta would be much better off if the government had invested in clean gas technology instead of heavy fuel oil, as the Opposition had suggested.
Dr Muscat also spoke about the European Commission report which he said yesterday had revealed that a new PN government would keep raising electricity bills.
This same report was also seeing the cost of living increase at a faster rate than wages.
"Labour has a clear strategy that will ensure that Malta has a reliable energy supply, which is a mix between renewable and non-renewable sources, Dr Muscat said.
He added that Malta had already failed to meet many of the EU's targets on alternative and renewable energy.
