The ACCC says your energy bills are too high.

July 11, 2018

The consumer watchdog believes Australians are paying too much for their electricity - something the Conservative Party has been saying for the past 18 months.

A lack of competition in the energy market and policy mistakes by successive state and federal governments has added significant costs to power bills, according to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

The watchdog says power bills can be reduced by at least 25 per cent if governments adopt a series of recommendations from its report on the energy market.

And the ACCC's chairman, Rod Sims, reckons that's a conservative saving.

The Conservative Party has long advocated a competitive tender approach to contract out the government's $450 million annual power requirements which will fix the problems in our energy market and also saving taxpayers money.

Senator Bernardi has told Ashleigh Gillon on Sky News what we don't need now is yet another pointless energy review.
