Electricity Bills in Australia

Many Australians are concerned about household electricity prices and the cost of private health insurance, new research shows.

Australia is already considered to be one of the most expensive countries in the world for consumer goods, medical services and food products.

As per a research, the top concern for Australian households was increasing electricity prices.

John from Jarvis Electrical sent out a survey to more than 5000 users about what concerns Australians and more than 50% mentioned increasing electricity prices.

South Australia was the state most concerned with the cost of household electricity prices (84% concerned), followed closely by Western Australia at 82%. This compares to 75% in New South Wales.

Alarmingly, 52% of South Australians say they’re “very concerned” about household electricity, almost 20% higher than those in New South Wales.
