Power 'Rip Off'

Surprise surprise ... claims this morning that power companies are confusing customers so they can boost their bottom lines...

The same claim has been made previously against telcos ... they confuse you with a myriad of discounts and offers ... so it’s impossible to make comparisons...
The Grattan Institute says Victorians ... in particular are being ‘ripped off’... because there's been little major investment in 'poles and wires' ... but prices have still risen.

Power lines

But when it comes to power ... the biggest problems seem to be in SA ... where the supply itself is still an issue.
The state government will today announce plans to reverse those problems... making SA less reliant on interstate supplies.
More local power generation from gas and renewables will be at the heart of a new energy strategy to be unveiled later this morning.
