Power bills drop for CQ



The turn of the new financial year bought with it lower power bills for Central Queenslanders.

Power bills reportedly dropped by $84 for households and $75 for small businesses from July 1st.

Keppel MP Brittany Lauga said from it is the third year in a row the region has seen a drop in energy prices.

“As we emerge from COVID-19 and restrictions continue to ease, it’s important for us all to work together to help Queensland recover. Reducing business costs will support our small businesses to recover and create jobs again," Ms Lauga said.

Ms Lauga said the reduction in wholesale energy costs largely reflects the expected entry of renewable investment in Queensland and other National Electricity Market regions, and a reduction in domestic gas prices.
