Reduce our power bills
Imagine being able to read your energy bill with confidence and knowing if you're on a good deal. For most consumers, this isn't a reality – but it could be.
The government has just announced that better, fairer default energy offers will be introduced from July next year. Safe default offers will have a hard-capped price, which will stop big energy companies from charging consumers on standing offers a huge loyalty tax.
The Energy Minister has shown a commitment to lowering energy prices, but there’s more that the Federal Government can do if they’re dedicated to making the cost of energy easier and fairer for everyone.
Let's call on the government to go even further and put an end to sneaky late payment fees. Retailers are disguising massive late payment fees as "discounts" to trick people into thinking they’re getting a good deal. These "discounts" are designed to punish people so they end up paying more than they should.
Together we can use the momentum of this national moment to keep pushing to fix the way big energy retailers do business. If the Energy Minister knows thousands of us support putting a ban on sneaky late payment fees, his office will know they have public support to go even further to make these changes.
