Tariff reform could save you $140 off bill, says Energex

ENERGEX is seeking feedback from its customers over its proposed residential tariff reforms that could include a demand component and the introduction of smart meters.

The reform package will be submitted to the Australian Energy Regulator for their approval next month with a final decision due in the new year.

The regulator's decision will lock in tariff prices until 2020.

Energex claims 58% of residential customers would be better off under the new reforms and households could save between $115 and $140.

But Energex's own modelling shows some customers could be worse off if they switched from a flat residential tariff to a demand-based tariff.

Energex says those customers could see an increase of between 0.4% and 8% under the proposed demand-based tariff, depending on their individual circumstances.

The consultation period for the tariff reform program runs until October 2.
