Last chance to at­tack power bills

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

TABLE­LANDS busi­ness own­ers are be­ing urged to share their power bill horror sto­ries and help a lobby group pres­sure the State Gov­ern­ment.

The chance to have a say on the Draft 2018-19 elec­tric­ity prices set by the Queens­land Com­pe­ti­tion Au­thor­ity (QCA) ends on April 9.

The Queens­land Elec­tric­ity Users Net­work (QEUN) co­or­di­na­tor Jen­nifer Brownie is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to post their power bill sto­ries on the QEUN web­site.

“Power bills are at un­sus­tain­able lev­els and must fall sub­stan­tially,” she said.

“The QCA ran work­shops to ex­plain their draft prices but it meant find­ing two hours in the mid­dle of a work­ing day to at­tend their work­shops.

“Peo­ple sim­ply can’t af­ford that time away from work.

“That’s why we are giv­ing them the op­por­tu­nity to tell their power bill story by post­ing a cou­ple of sen­tences on the QEUN web­site.”

The power bill sto­ries will be in­cluded in the QEUN’s sub­mis­sion to the Queens­land Com­pe­ti­tion Au­thor­ity and can be posted on the QEUN web­site un­til April 9. Share your story by visit For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion please con­tact: Jen­nifer Brownie on 4031 2865.
