21% power bill increase

Posted by: Staff writers | 22 February, 2013 - 4:59 PM

4BC Drive: Queenslanders have today been told to expect a 20% price hike for electricity from July.

The state's competition regulator has released its draft determination on power prices for 2013/14.

Queensland Treasurer Tim Nicholls joins Gary Hardgrave following the release of these recommendations, that would essentially add $428 to an annual power bill of about $2000.

Blog comments Your Say

    to the R Man
    Super has zilch to do with unions and super certainly helps people get through retirement.
    Couples can have 40 grand a year popping into the bank account through super and still get a part pension. They can gradually work through their super until they turn 90 and then just live on a pension.
    I pity the poor people who didn't plan for their retirement who will never have 4 holidays a year, buy new cars, fix old houses.
    Thankfully the young people of today will never experience their predicament - all because of super.

  • Screw super.
    It has done nothing but make Union bosses rich and forced up commodity prices.
    Who honestly thinks taht there super will see thaem through retirement.
    Put the money back into my wage and let me decide how I want to plan for my retirement.
    Put it into bricks and mortar or my own business.

    Screw socialist policy.
    Spread the wealth and all that crap. sickening.

  • Bob lord being the delusional labor liar as usual.

  • not for long following the coming election Australians will not be required to pay for labor's lunacy, goodbye to this stupidity. It is amazing how fools seem to think that green investments are doing something for the enviroment, they are being had at every twist and turn the socialists make.

    Green based investments outperform bonds and bank investments many times - you should check them out.
    Save the environment and make money.

    I got it - all Labor women are hopeless, thanks. errrr, I think you have the same opinion of Labor men so you definitely aren't sexist just narrow minded.
    Thanks for not arguing that about your employment past. Now can you be the whistleblower on your government department that spent their lunch hours playing cricket on their specially prepared turf.
    Did the women indulge in weightlifting and cricket matches also or were they too busy outperforming the bludging males.
