How Aussies Are Fighting The Great Electricity Price Rort

eandg-article-prim

Electricity companies have been getting away with changing rates without telling their customers.

The retail energy sector is under fire with politicians and big companies pointing the finger at each other for price rises as high as 20%. After July 1st, the average Aussie is paying an extra $600 per year in some states*.

And in the meantime, energy companies have been letting their customers foot the bill. Chances are, when you first signed up with your provider they offered you an introductory deal or discount. If you’re like most people you didn’t keep a track of when that plan expired.

Until now, your provider has been able to switch you over to the default, more expensive plan without actually letting you know. And because of that, many Aussies are missing out on easy savings.

“It’s been estimated households could save $1000 or more a year by switching companies or $400 just by getting a better deal from their existing supplier,” Katina Curtis reported for news.com.au.
