Household and business energy users across regional Queensland are encouraged to have their say on the determination of 2013-14 electricity prices at a series of workshops across the state later this month. The workshops will give regional Queenslanders, including residents, consumer groups, and small and large businesses, an opportunity to air their views on electricity pricing. In September the Queensland Government released terms of reference for the QCA to develop electricity tariffs for 2013-14 that better reflect the cost of delivering electricity.
The terms of reference also required the QCA to consider appropriate transitional arrangements for the standard residential Tariff 11, obsolete tariffs such as farming and irrigation tariffs, and large business tariffs in Ergon Energy’s distribution area outside the state’s south east. To view the QCA’s terms of reference, Interim Consultation Paper, submissions submitted to date or to register your interest to attend one of these workshops, please visit the QCA’s website www.qca.org.au. In order to attend a workshop you must register your interest on the website above.
