Federal Member for Eden Monaro Dr Mike Kelly has slammed Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, saying he has nothing do with the next phase of Snowy Hydro.

Yesterday, the Prime Minister was in Cooma where he announced the company ARENA is contributing $8million to the $29million feasibility study.

Dr Kelly says it isn't news.

In Senate Estimates in May this year, Snowy Hydro already confirmed they were expecting the feasibility study to cost $29 million and ARENA to put in $8 million of this cost.

The feasibility study looks into several sites across the Scheme, which could support new large-scale, pumped hydro-electric energy storage.

Mr Turnbull says it will bring thousands of jobs to the region.
