Bring down electricity prices - Liberal Democrats


Taxed to Death

Electricity is essential to the modern world. It keeps our house warm, it cooks our food, and it enables us to veg out in front of Netflix after a hard day at work. However, once a quarter we get a rude shock from the electricity company in the form of our latest bill.

Australia used to have some of the cheapest electricity prices in the world, it now has some of the most expensive. This is largely due to regulations that force retailers to buy wind and solar energy, as well as the large subsidies for renewables that are funded by consumers

The Liberal Democrats believe that everyday hard-working Australians should have reliable, cheap electricity.

The Liberal Democrats believe the cost of electricity is now too high. Average hard-working Aussies should not have to pay so much for a basic necessity. The Liberal Democrats propose that the federal government immediately removes GST from electricity to provide financial relief. Other countries which have GST, such as Canada and New Zealand, do not add GST to electricity bills as they recognise that electricity is a necessity of modern life.
