Increases to electricity pricing

Posted on 28 July 2014
At the start of July, energy providers announced that there would be significant increases to electricity pricing. For example, AGL Energy announced that they would be introducing the following tariff increases effective from July 15, 2014:

5% increase to their Peak tariff
16% increase to their Off-Peak tariff
66% increase in Supply Charge

What does this mean for the average household?

  • A 13.6% total increase to the average power bill*
  • The average Australian will be $190 extra out-of-pocket*

Whilst it is likely that prices may be reduced slightly with the removal of the carbon tax, we will have to wait and see how energy providers approach this change. Regardless of the outcome, energy will continue to rise and there is no better time than now to evaluate your energy usage. If you would like carry out a review of your household's electricity usage - SolarGreen is offering a FREE Energy Audit to all residents in SE Queensland & Northern NSW.
