A HYDRO Tasmania subsidiary, Momentum, is offering electricity to its interstate customers which was carbon tax-free and not available to Tasmanians, Budget Estimates hearings were told yesterday.
Opposition energy spokesman Matthew Groom said the offer to Momentum customers was not available to Tasmanians, despite the state's hydro- and wind-generated power being almost entirely carbon-free.
He said the Government was insisting on making Tasmanians pay the carbon tax.
Energy and Resources Minister Bryan Green Green said the $10 million profit generated by Momentum would be returned through higher dividends.
