Small business to benefit from a better deal on energy

30 Aug 2017 |

It is a welcome announcement from the Prime Minister that small business will be included in measures to help households manage their energy bills, the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry said today.

Director of Economics and Industry Policy, Adam Carr said:

“We have been concerned that small business customers are missing out on getting the best deal on their energy prices.

“We want energy retailers to make it easier for small businesses, for everyone, to compare offers and to switch if they are not getting the best deal.

“Our members have told us that their energy costs are soaring and that a part of the problem is that it’s difficult to compare offers from retailers.

“The announcement from the Prime Minister that small business will be included in today’s measures agreed with the energy retailers is a win for small business and a good step forward. We look forward to more information from the Government about how small businesses will access the benefits from these measures.

“But more needs to be done to get prices down.”
