Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg orders crackdown on ‘totally unacceptable’ electricity price gouging

A Federal Government crackdown on electricity price gouging by distribution networks could save householders hundreds of dollars on power bills.

A review will be carried out by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) to ensure energy companies are not charging customers for their corporate tax liabilities.

According to the Minister for the Environment and Energy, Josh Frydenberg, it is “totally unacceptable” for consumers to be charged for corporate tax liabilities they have not incurred.
