Today another Government Department, the Department of Health and Human Services, has confirmed that it chooses to buy its power from Queensland-based Company ERM over our own Retail Company Aurora according to Shadow Minister for Energy Matthew Groom.

“This is further proof that Tasmanian mums and dads and small businesses are being denied access to cheaper power by the Labor-Green Government.”

“This shows we have a two class system where Government can access cheaper power prices while Tasmanian mums and dads and small businesses miss out.” Mr. Groom said.

“Lara Giddings and Bryan Green need to admit that they are wrong and open up the energy market as soon as possible so that all Tasmanians can benefit from cheaper Power Prices.”

“Tasmanians are sick and tired of this Government’s Paternalistic, ‘Government knows best’, attitude.  Tasmanians are seriously hurting and they have had enough.” Mr. Groom said.
