Holy shit, this is fucking awful.
It recently approved another rise of 7 per cent beginning Thursday.
These increases are not reflected in the latest hardship figures.
I noticed that my electricity bill went up massively this quarter. It was somewhat deceiving as the column on the little graph, that they insert into the bill, was ‘taller’ compared to the same time last year, so it looked as though I had used more energy but then I realised the columns only reflect price, not usage. When I compared through kilowatts – I’d used roughly the same.
My life is terrifying; these price rises are scary. I am not looking forward to the the increases happening with the gas. I work full-time and I am frightened, what about single parents or single income families or people on lower incomes? Faaark.
