Keneally Electricity Price Promise

Kristina Keneally is promising to cut electricity prices to the tune of $100 for every household in New South Wales.

The cost cutting measure is a result of diverting alternative funds to subsidise the bloated solar rebate scheme.  The solar scheme itself will cost $1.5 billion over the coming years, and Keneally is promising not to allow these costs to be bourne directly by consumers on their electricity bills.

In reality, Keneally is not actually cutting customer bills, but preventing excessive costs being added to customer bills from what some consider to be a poorly conceived solar rebate scheme.
