The Queensland Government has handed down a firm warning to its energy retailers, urging them to ensure that the  $175 rebate (included in its latest budget), is passed on to households. 

Queensland Minister for Energy, Mick de Brenni, said the recent State Budget included the state’s sixth energy rebate. 

“These rebates would not have been possible without public ownership of Queensland’s energy assets,” Mr de Brenni said.

“Historically, retailers have done the right thing, however, I’m reminding energy retailers to pass on the $175 rebate to all households and warned that they will be named and shamed if they do not.

“I am also concerned about the fluctuations occurring in the market and the decision by some retailers to increase their prices higher than the Australian Energy Regulator’s Default Market Offer.

“Queenslanders are reminded that they have a right to not only be offered the Default Market Offer but to see how it compares with the retail offer or they can shop around for a better deal.

“Queensland households should also look for a message on their bill which refers to the $175 cost-of-living rebate.”
