Power Deregulation

Monday 10 July 2017

Gas and electricity retail prices are increasing and gas prices have just been deregulated. Information on electricity is HERE. Information on gas is HERE.

Consumers now have to do a lot of investigating to find the best deals, which will depend on use, contract conditions and greenpower needs. See www.energymadeeasy.gov.au and have details of your electricity and gas bills to work out the best arrangement.

I opposed electricity privatisation in Parliament, raising concerns that energy prices would rise while entrenching NSW in a future of dirty coal. I’ve asked questions about increasing energy costs, pushed for consumer protections, incentives to make rental homes more energy efficient and to encourage better peak demand management. Following the latest price rises I intend to follow up with further questions when Parliament resumes. My work is HERE
