Electricity and Gas Suppliers Increase Rates due to Carbon Tax
The Australian Government’s carbon price was applied to both electricity and gas as of July 2012. While the federal carbon tax has been making headlines for months, its introduction has caused electricity and gas suppliers throughout Australia to raise their rates in order to compensate.
Leading electricity retailers like Lumo Energy have warned customers in advance that they can expect to pay more on gas and electricity bills as a result of the carbon price used to support the Government’s Clean Energy plan.
Because of the tax, electricity and gas suppliers will incur extra costs, as will a number of other businesses in Australia. Unfortunately, these costs will be passed down to energy customers in the form of more expensive gas and electricity bills.
It’s understandable that most customers are frustrated about this unprecedented electricity and gas price hike. The Government continues to remind energy customers that they will do their part to provide financial assistance to households feeling the squeeze so that Australian families can experience the least impact possible from this sudden price rise in the energy market.
Although customers won’t pay directly for the carbon tax, price surges throughout the nation will increase everyday household expenses, especially when it comes to the cost of electricity and gas. The carbon price will be the same for electricity and gas suppliers in each state, but retailers will increase prices at their discretion so that energy rates will continue to vary from state to state.
As an example, Lumo Energy has confirmed that customers will see electricity rates rise by approximately 10% for the average residential or business customer. Customers in New South Wales, Queensland, and South Australia will see even further price increases on their next quarterly bill due to expenses needed for rising network costs.
Although little can be done about price increases caused by the federal carbon tax, customers in states with full retail competition do have the right to choose from multiple electricity and gas suppliers. When you take advantage of our free electricity comparison, you have a great opportunity to find and then easily lock in cheaper energy rates. All this can be achieved in just a few minutes!
