Affordable and reliable energy

The Coalition Government is creating a more affordable and reliable energy system through reforms to the networks (poles and wires), generation and retailers which together make up the power bill.

We have taken action across the board to put downward pressure on power prices by:

  • stopping poles and wires companies from gaming the system, which will save consumers billions of dollars
  • securing more gas for the domestic market, which has seen gas prices fall by up to 50 per cent
  • getting better retail deals for customers, making sure the retailers wrote to 1.7 million Australians offering a better deal
  • investing in energy storage projects such as Snowy 2.0

If you haven’t done so already, you should contact your energy retailer to seek a better deal on your electricity and gas bill. Thousands of Australians have successfully done this since we put pressure on the retailers last year.
