In his budget reply speech to be delivered on Thursday, Mr Foley will also call on the government to invest in battery storage technology to avoid blackouts and pledge to not build the F6 extension through the Royal National Park.

According to speech excerpts released by his office, Mr Foley will note that on February 10 this year "NSW ran out of power" – a reference to the strain on the electricity grid during extreme heatwave conditions.

Mr Foley will say that due to inaction by the Berejiklian government, NSW is "staring down the barrel at the possibility of blackouts this coming summer.”
