Government must take more control of electricity grid: Bandt

Greens spokesperson for energy Adam Bandt MP today said that the Federal Court’s decision that will increase electricity prices by up to $3bn for NSW families shows the government needs to exercise more control over what consumers are charged.

“Under the Liberals, power prices are skyrocketing and there’s no plan to fix the system,” said Mr Bandt.

“Under the Liberals, power prices are skyrocketing and there’s no plan to fix the system,” said Mr Bandt.

“It’s time for greater federal regulation of the national electricity grid, including setting up an independent statutory authority to rewrite the rules for investment and bring down prices.

“All options need to be on the table, including price caps for power bills.”
