There was an interesting, if somewhat hard to follow, piece in The Age recently warning that power bills are to double within six years.
On top of rising fuel and gas prices, TRUenergy - one of Australia's largest home and business electricity suppliers - has warned that uncertainty over the implementation of a carbon tax could reduce investment in the power industry and lead to energy shortages.
Whilst we don't know the fate of the carbon tax or an emissions trading scheme, there is little doubt in anyone's mind that prices are only going one way: up.
A great way to ensure you are not spending more than you should be on power bills is to invest in a home energy monitor from SmartNow. The Current Cost EnviR is a simple device which enables you to see exactly how much energy you are using in real time and what it is costing you, empowering you to take control of your usage.
