Electricity prices down $421 and more savings to come


ESCosa’s latest report details that families in South Australia have saved $118 on their electricity bills in the past 6 months alone as the Marshall Government continues to undo the carnage caused by chaotic and harmful policies of the former Labor government.

“The contrast between the performance of this Liberal government and that of the last Labor government could not be more stark – in the last two years of the former Labor government, average electricity prices soared by $477 said Premier Marshall.

“The choice for the future couldn’t be clearer either – my government is delivering the SA-NSW Interconnector which independent modeling has shown will reduce annual household electricity bills by an additional $100, a project the Labor spokesman for energy, Tom Koutsantonis, has opposed tooth and nail since we announced it.

“Voters will be able to decide whether they want to go back to the most expensive electricity in the world and the constant blackouts that Tom Koutsantonis provided, or to stick with a government that achieved $421 in annual savings and the lowest number of ‘hours lost due to power outages in the countryside.’

Deputy Prime Minister and Energy Minister Dan van Holst Pellekaan said the $421 in savings and restoring grid stability while simultaneously increasing the use of renewables are the result of sensible policies effectively implemented.

“The Liberal Marshall government inherited a kneeling electricity system, dependent on dirty Third World diesel generators to keep the lights on from a Labor government charging South Australian families and businesses like a wounded bull,” said Minister van Holst Pellekaan.

“Electricity savings have also benefited all businesses, with small businesses achieving an average of 16.8% savings since the change of government in 2018.

“South Australia is now a world-leading energy jurisdiction with over 60% renewable energy, cheaper electricity and no insufficient supply or impact on grid stability on consumers in the last four years.

“Despite the implementation of a statewide blackout and the most expensive electricity prices in the world, Tom Koutsantonis and the Labor Party have consistently opposed the policies we have put in place. in place to lower the price of electricity and keep the lights on.

“The world’s largest per-capita home battery deployment, virtual power plants, voluntary demand side management, four additional grid-wide batteries and confirmation that the SA-NSW interconnection will continue are all driving down the price.

“The real issue facing voters in South Australia is whether they want to put Labour’s Tom Koutsantonis in charge of their electricity bills and the reliability of their supply?

“Tom Koutsantonis can claim to be the worst energy minister in history and his hysterical attacks on our successful policies show that he has learned nothing.

“Tom Koutsantonis can’t be given the responsibility of running our power grid, but that’s exactly what Peter Malinauskas plans to do.”
