NSW electricity bills to increase by an average of $200 per house from July 1st

Consumer group network One Big Switch estimates NSW households will face an average price rise of more than $200 a year in metropolitan Sydney.

While many retailers will wait until July 1 to announce their price rises, Origin Energy and AGL have revealed they will raise their prices by 10 and 11 per cent on average, respectively. Estimates based on July 1 standing offers announced by Origin Energy and AGL only, suggest different household types will experience different levels of bill shock. For a young or retired couple living together, they can expect a 10 per cent or $136.23 average annual increase. In the case of a young family with a young child, prices could rise by 10.1 per cent or $158.16 on average.
