A majority Gutwein Liberal Government will empower customers to lower their energy usage and reduce their electricity bills.
If re-elected we will provide the tools and information households need to reduce their cost of living by:
- Re-launching a $30 million over 2 years TEELS program, to support residential and small businesses including landlords to install energy efficient appliances and solar systems;
- Boosting the highly successful NILS Energy Saver Loan and Subsidy Scheme with funding of $2 million across the coming four years to help families in need to invest in energy saving applications for their home; and
- Accelerate the rollout of advanced meters by 2026, in line with national electricity laws, to facilitate modern products that empower customers to lower their energy costs.
We have a proven record when it comes to taking action to reduce cost of living pressures by restricting price increases in nominal terms to no more than 2.2 per cent. As a result, Tasmanians experience some of the lowest regulated electricity prices in Australia.
By comparison electricity prices skyrocketed by a crippling 65 per cent under the previous Labor Green Government.
Only a majority Gutwein Liberal Government will continue to put downward pressure on the cost of living for Tasmanian households and small businesses – providing much needed support as we continue to rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic.
