Electricity Bills

The Marshall Liberal Government has reduced the average household electricity bill by $421 per year. We said we’d do this and we over delivered on our promise.

What we said we'd do

Fix the electricity crisis Labor created, ensuring our system is reliable while cutting the average household bill by $302.

What we've done

The Marshall Liberal Government has OVER delivered on our promise - making the average household's electricity bill $421 cheaper per year compared to when we came to government (ESCOSA).

Under the former Labor Government, the average household power bill increased by $477 in their last two years alone. And I’m sure no one’s forgotten the entire state being plunged into darkness in Labor’s statewide blackout.

In stark contrast, our energy solution is working – delivering cheaper bills and keeping the lights on while continuing South Australia's leadership in renewable energy.

And it’s only part of how we are delivering on our promise to lower costs for households and businesses, with the average household saving $1,092 a year under the Marshall Liberal Government.
