Member For Wannon Says Federal Government's Policy Is Working

In welcome news from the Federal Government, pressure put on energy companies has seen families and small businesses across the south west receive an automatic discount of up to 15% on their energy bill.

Member for Wannon, Dan Tehan says the Government's energy policy is delivering for people, but more needs to be done.

“The big energy companies have heard the Government's calls for a fairer deal for Australian families and small businesses, and they have responded,”

We know that navigating your power bills, understanding your energy usage and negotiating a better deal can be confusing and time-consuming. That’s why the Government is developing a reference bill to be implemented by 1 July 2019 – a price safety net making it easier to compare offers."

Energy retailers including Origin, Energy Australia and AGL have listened and lowered their standing offer prices for customers in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and South East Queensland who are paying too much for their electricity.

On average, this is delivering savings of $131 for residential standing offer customers in Wannon from 1 January 2019.
