NSW customers see 10 per cent electricity price hike today

All New South Wales customers are seeing electricity price hikes today.

Electricity supply regions hikes are as follows:

  • Country Energy: 13%
  • EnergyAustralia: 10%
  • Integral Energy: 7%

With the average hike being 10%, it means that a typical small business could see a clear $500-1000 added to their energy bill over the course of the next 12 months.

What's worse, in 12 months time the average increase is anticipated to be 15%, then in 2012 25%.

Businesses and homeowners need to start planning now on how best they can afford these sorts of bill sizes.
