If you’ve moved home, or your energy contract has expired, chances are you’re on a standing offer. They’re designed for those of us who did not or could not make a choice about which energy contract they should go on. Unfortunately, while these contracts were designed to protect people, they’re actually penalising us for staying with our energy company. Energy companies can set the price of these contracts and have made them the most expensive prices on the market.
People need offers that provide proper protections, and a fair price. That’s why we’re calling for the government to end standing offers and introduce better energy offers instead.
The Federal Government is proposing new safe default energy offers, which is great news. We’re yet to see whether the State Ministers are on board, so we need to show our support for this important policy.
