How much are Australians paying for energy?

Australian households are paying higher energy bills than ever before. Electricity prices increased an average of 72 per cent between June 2003 and June 2013, but the rate hikes didn’t stop there. 

In 2019, energy prices hit an all-time high in Victoria and New South Wales. Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania all recorded the second-highest energy prices on record.

This was despite the Federal Government’s attempt to regulate the retail energy market to keep electricity prices down. In 2020 it’s expected that Australian households will continue to pay among the highest energy rates in the world.

What does this mean for older Australians? 

Many older Australians are feeling the squeeze as the cost of living continues to rise in 2020 for both self-funded retirees and aged pensioner households. 

Sky-high energy bills will only continue to add pressure to older Australians’ already stretched budgets. And there’s little relief in sight with the Energy Supplement for aged pensioners remaining unchanged in 2020.
