Can Do Campbell Celebrates LNP State Election Victory in Brisbane

The start of a new political era has began for Queensland after can do Campbell Newman leads the Liberal National Party to a landslide victory in the 2012 Queensland State Election held in Brisbane.

Winning 78 out of the 89 seats, Newman made history yesterday with the biggest parliamentary majority in the State’s history.

Labour suffered a devastating blow by winning only 4 out of the 89 seats.  Anna Bligh has not confirmed that she will continue to lead the Labour Party.

Newman thanked Queenslanders for placing their trust in him and the Liberal National Party.

“I pledge to you that we will conduct ourselves with humility, grace and dignity. We will work for all Queenslanders regardless of their vote,” he told supporters in his victory speech last night.

“We’re determined that Queenslanders will walk tall.”

With promises of reducing the cost of living as well as other policy changes, Newman is under pressure to deliver.

Queensland’s generous net feed-in tariff of 44c for excess solar power is expected to remain with the LNP government in power.  Other solar and clean energy initiatives such as the Queensland Solar Sports and Community Group Grant, the Queensland State Solar Hot Water Grant and the Climate Smart Home Services is also expected to remain however the topic has been flying under the radar.

With promises to reduce the cost of living, it would seem hipoctitical for the LNP to terminate the energy saving grants.

I took an interest in the Australian energy sector close to ten years ago and since then have monitored the trends, technologies and direction of the Australian Energy Market. I was drawn to the Australian solar market in 2008 and since then have worked heavily in the field. I am partnered with national and international solar energy companies, from manufacturers of solar panel and inverter technology, online software developers that introduce tools to quote, monitor and manage solar power systems and media organisations who like myself, closely monitor the solar and renewable energy sector.
