AGL & Origin announce big rise in electricity prices

This week AGL announced a 12% increase to its electricity prices and Origin, 6.5%; and the changes will take effect from as early as next month. For AGL customers, this equates to approximately $220 extra a year.

Consumers have been advised to shop around but the market expects all retailers will raise their prices. With the blame being laid on the cost and availability of coal and gas supplies, it is likely that prices will continue to rise, so it has never been a better time to switch to solar.
