Gas prices set to rise in NSW
Business customers and homeowners could see price rises of up to 17.5 per cent
over the next three years.
The news comes off the back of recommendation from IPART, the New South Wales energy regulator. The price increase will vary massively by customer, depending on which supplier they are currently with.
A breakdown of the proposed gas price changes over the next 3 years are as follows:
AGL Energy: 12.4 per cent
Country Energy: 17.5 per cent
Origin Energy: 17 per cent
ActewAGL: 12.3 per cent
AGL Energy: 0 per cent
Country Energy: 16.4 per cent
Origin Energy: 9.3 per cent
ActewAGL: 13.6 per cent
Make It Cheaper says: "These proposed gas price changes have some real highs and lows. AGL business customer have struck some luck, whilst Country Energy residential customers have caught the sharp end of these rises.
This is really going to make it difficult for customers to truly understand the impact of these price increases."
As ever, we recommend thinking about becoming more efficient and economical the gas you use. And of course shopping around to see if there are cheaper gas deals out there - remembering that some bundle dual fuel deals through one supplier may not be as good as two seperate suppliers for you gas and electricity."
