    Default Re: Is your electricity bill cheaper since the carbon tax was introduced?

    Just curious is anyone who got smaller bills with energy Australia (used to be tru energy?) Because they had me on a payment plan and I ended up paying over $500 more than I should have, I am now in credit for my next bill. Their estimates were way off.

    I hate it. For Christmas we are buying a 7 star tv $2700 but costs about $60 a year to run. I'm trying to upgrade our appliances to higher star ratings to help it out! It's ridiculous. We're not even home!!!!

    In qld it's gone up, not because of the carbon tax but because of 'infrastructure costs'
