Queenslanders to have their say on electricity prices

Household and business energy users across regional Queensland are encouraged to have their say on the determination of 2013-14 electricity prices at a series of workshops across the state later this month.

Energy Minister Mark McArdle said the Queensland Competition Authority (QCA) would host workshops across regional Queensland as part of its consultation process for setting regulated retail electricity prices for 2013-14.

"These workshops will give regional Queenslanders, including residents, consumer groups, and small and large businesses, an opportunity to air their views on electricity pricing," Mr McArdle said.

 "The public consultation period is an important part of the QCA's process to set these new tariffs, and I encourage all Queenslanders outside the south east with an interest in electricity prices to attend one of the workshops," he said.

The Gatton workshop will be held on November 19.
 

To view the QCA's terms of reference, Interim Consultation Paper, submissions submitted to date or  to register your interest to attend one of these workshops, please visit the  QCA's website www.qca.org.au.
