Tasmanians Face Price Rise Crisis

Tasmanians who least can afford it will be slugged with an 11 % rise in their power bills from July 1.

With power prices already spiraling out of control, today’s confirmation of the rise by the Economic Regulator will push many Tasmanians over the edge, according to Shadow Minister for Energy Matthew Groom.

“In contrast, while the Green-Labor Government is sitting back doing nothing, the Tasmanians Liberals believe that the state needs competition in the energy sector to put downward pressure on power prices.”

“Ms. Giddings’ failure to support our positive plan shows just how out of touch she is with the people she is supposed to represent.” Mr. Groom said.
