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.
