Electricity bills in Australia


COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA CONSTITUTION ACT – SECT 53 Powers of the Houses in respect of legislation                    Proposed laws appropriating revenue or moneys, or imposing taxation, shall not originate in the Senate. But a proposed law shall not be taken to appropriate revenue or moneys, or to impose taxation, by reason only of its containing provisions for the imposition or appropriation of fines or other pecuniary penalties, or for the demand or payment or appropriation of fees for licences, or fees for services under the proposed law.

**   The Senate may not amend proposed laws imposing taxation, or proposed laws appropriating revenue or moneys for the ordinary annual services of the Government.

The Senate may not amend any proposed law so as to increase any proposed charge or burden on the people. **

The Senate may at any stage return to the House of Representatives any proposed law which the Senate may not amend, requesting, by message, the omission or amendment of any items or provisions therein. And the House of Representatives may, if it thinks fit, make any of such omissions or amendments, with or without modifications.

Except as provided in this section, the Senate shall have equal power with the House of Representatives in respect of all proposed laws.

How is it our politician’s can ignore our constitution like criminals ignoring the LAW ?


They charge you for the electricity delivery to you premises  during peak $31.11  and off peak $12.22

You wouldn’t buy a pizza during peak period due to the exorbatant extra profiteering/racketeering  going on.

I notice the Energy minister also has  resigned after a visit  by ASIO

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/state-politics/nsw-energy-minister-chris-hartcher-quits-portfolio-folloNSW Energy Minister Chris Hartcher has quit his portfolio over the issue of a search warrant by the Independent Commission Against Corruption.

Mr Hartcher is one of the most senior members of the O’Farrell government, and the leader of a right wing faction.

In a statement today, Mr Hartcher said he would continue to serve as member for Terrigal, on the NSW Central Coast.

He said: “My resignation follows the issue of a search warrant by the Independent Commission Against Corruption) against me.



George Soros  has his finger in to many pies me thinks and is providing the cash for scumbaggery to ensue.

        Add to that, you had no warning from your Relative Landlord that Rural Electricity Charges would be any higher rate that your previous enjoyed at the Coast. Outrageous exploitation of a relative who is disabled both physically & financially. Take it up with your Landlord, If you are paying $200 a week, power should be included. The owner does not have to pay connection fee if he already has other residence connected to power, & correct me if I am wrong.
