TOPIC: Electricity Price Rise

14 Apr 2011 21:50 Electricity Price Rise #6909

We all know that the cost of electricity has skyrocketed! The independent Queensland Competition Authority has today announced that it proposes to increase Queensland regulated electricity prices by 5.83 per cent from 1 July 2011.

"The QCA estimated its 2011 price increase could have been just 2.92 per cent in line with the consumer price index," he said.

"Unfortunately, it had to revise this up to 5.83 per cent after factoring in the impact of the Federal Government's RET which takes effect nationally from 1 January 2011.

For a household that uses around the average 7,880kwh per year, the proposed increase is an additional $26 on the average quarterly bill of $440 or about 28 cents per day.
