Categories: General Date: Feb 26, 2019 Title: Delivering A Better Energy Deal For All VictoriansThe Andrews Labor Government have introduced a Bill into parliament to legislate a Victorian Default Offer that will cut the cost of energy for households across the state.
The Energy Legislation Amendment (Victorian Default Offer) Bill 2019 will empower the Essential Services Commission to determine a fair price and work with retailers to enforce it.
Premier Daniel Andrews said "Hard working Victorians are sick of being ripped off by energy retailers, so we're getting rid of these unfair deals."
The legislation will abolish standing energy offers and require energy retailers to offer a fairer price for energy - which could save households around $200 to $500 a year on average on their energy bills.
