Best to research offers and find savings before switching off gas

Friday 10th of March 2017 09:32:15 AM



Despite the forecast by the Australian Energy Market Operator of a looming shortage of gas on the country’s east coast, consumer groups believe it’s too early to advise people whether to switch away from gas.

Households should instead research the most competitive offers available from across the range of energy providers, according Energy Consumers Australia (ECA).

The public body established by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) is waiting for the full findings of an independent report into the country's electricity market by chief scientist Alan Finkel, before making recommendations to consumers on the best longer-term approach to managing household energy use.

"Short-term reaction would not be in their best interest," Ms Sinclair said.
