Home Living : March 30th 2010
4 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, March 30, 2010 Smart ways » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING This is an important time for consumers to think of ways to further save following the recent rise in energy rates. NSW homeowners can expect to pay up to 64 per cent more over the next three years for electricity after the pricing regulator gave retailers the go- ahead to raise prices. The rise will send the average electricity bill up by between $577 and $918 a year by 2013.The price rise is due to a large increase in the cost of supplying electricity and the need to ensure the state's future capacity can be funded. The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal said EnergyAustralia bills will rise by 60 per cent, adding $754 to a typical household customer's energy bill by 2013, while Integral Energy and Country Energy bills will rise by 46 per cent respectively in the same period, adding $577 and $918. EcoSmart national business manager Romano Bolzon said there were options for homeowners to reduce energy bills. ''It's timely for householders to consider an energy-efficient solar hot water system which will save more money in the long run,'' he said. ''There are still generous rebates around to help with the up-front investment in environmental water heaters. ''With federal, state and renewable energy certificate rebates in NSW, the homeowner is entitled to nearly $3000 off the cost of switching to a solar water heater," he said. Electric hot water systems account for 30 per cent of a household's energy consumption, and switching to an environmental water heater is the best single way to reduce energy bills.
