Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced that the federal government will contribute $1.38bn to the cost of the Snowy Hydro expansion project. Morrison says the government has reviewed the business case, which shows that the pumped hydro project is viable. Snowy Hydro Limited, which is owned by the federal government, will finance the balance of the project’s cost. Morrison has also committed the government to investing $56m in the Marinus Link project to build a second electricity interconnector between Tasmania and Victoria.
