NSW families energy pleas ignored by IPART

The Daily Telegraph has revealed today how the New South Wales energy regulator IPART chose to ignore pleas from families aned pensioners about the impact proposed electricity price increases will have on their bills.

The pleas reflect the serious concern about how affordable energy bills will become once these prices hikes kick in.

Make It Cheaper says: "Fuel poverty, which is really what this amounts to for many people, should not be happening in this day in age.

For many families and pensioners, these price hikes could represent a choice between heating and eating.  Which clearly cannot be acceptable to either the state or federal governments.

There are likely to be legitimate reasons for price increases, but thos in need, who are unable to afford their energy bills come winter need to be looked after by the government

Here at Make It Cheaper, we are more focussed on supporting and providing advice to businesses who are also likely to be struggling with their bill sizes.

That said, if homeowners need support and switching advice, we will be only too happy to help."
