Electricity bills under spotlight
EMERALD residents can put their electricity bills under the spotlight when Queensland Energy and Water Ombudsman visits the Emerald Library on Tuesday, June 14, between noon and 3pm.
Acting Energy and Water Ombudsman John Jones said the Central Queensland QEWO regional manager would be available to answer questions about bills or issues they had with electricity suppliers.
“People are doing it tough at the moment and we want to help them if they have any problems,” Mr Jones said.
“Come in to the library and have a one-on-one consultation with the regional manager. No appointment is required.”
Central Queensland regional manager Paul Mitchell said his staff could help explain electricity bills, negotiate with electricity suppliers on behalf of hard-up residents, as well as offer advice to rural landholders.
