Governments in Australia are more concerned with appeasing either the climate change believers or the sceptics than to bother doing anything about our SKYROCKETING energy prices.
We have an issue in NSW with wasting huge amounts of generated power – much of which could be reduced with an effective transition to smarter cities.
Since 2015 we have seen an increase in energy prices of around 130% – this is unsustainable and is forcing small business to the wall!
The Grattan institute shows these increases are due to supply costs (which are likely unnecessary) and gaming of the system (to create a false lack of supply), which is currently legal under our frameworks.
THE WASTE AND UNETHICAL ACTIONS OF THE POWER COMPANIES NEEDS TO STOP!
An effective energy and sustainability policy is vital to protect our small businesses, our families, and to ensure the viability of our local communities.
