Australia met its first round of Paris targets at a canter and the next was out to 2030, he said.
"Now, that discussion isn't going to change anybody's electricity prices, and that's what I'm focused on," Mr Morrison said.
"I'm not a climate warrior one way or the other. What I'm about is getting people's electricity prices down."
Mr Morrison said he would not do as Labor proposed and impose a 45 per cent emissions reductions target.
"My measure is not looking to get any sort of cheer squad jumping up and down for me when it comes to Paris one way or the other," he said.
"I'm looking for the cheer squad of mums and dads and pensioners and others seeing their electricity prices go down."
Mr Morrison said he was focused on building more sources of dispatchable power - generation from coal, gas, batteries and pumped hydro - that can be controlled to balance supply and demand.
"Could you stop using the word dispatchable? Out there they don't understand it," Jones said.
"Well, real power, okay? Real, fair dinkum power," the prime minister fired back.
"Reliable, keeps the lights on, all of that. That's what I'm about, I'm about fair dinkum power."
