The final version of the Federal Government’s national energy guarantee estimates that the average household’s electricity costs would fall by about $550 a year. Previous modelling had suggested that the NEG would reduce electricity bills by about $A400 a year. Meanwhile, the Energy Security Board has warned Labor-led states that investment in green energy programs will be adversely affected if they do not support the NEG at the upcoming Council of Australian Governments meeting. The ESB also says electricity prices will remain high of the NEG is not implemented.
