LNP's bill-busting plan for rising power costs

With another summer of above average temperatures predicted on the Sunshine Coast, many residents will be cranking the air-con to keep cool, but with that comes pain to the hip-pocket.

Cost-of-living expenses continue to go through the roof, thanks to the Labor Palaszczuk government's inaction to keep power prices down.

LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said Queenslanders want to spend time and money with their family over the Christmas holidays – not fork out more cash to power companies.

"The struggle is real for so many families and business owners who see their power bills go up and up and up," Ms Frecklington said.

"The LNP has made the issue one of our top priorities – we have a plan to deliver downward pressure on power prices.

"To promote more competition, the LNP will restructure government owned power generators from two to three - a move which has been recommended by the ACCC.

"We will also mandate that all three government generators invest in renewable energy where it is economically viable to do so."

LNP Member for Kawana Jarrod Bleijie said families and business owners across the Sunshine Coast have expressed their frustration with the rising cost of power.

"Only the LNP has a viable, long term plan which will put household budgets back on track," Mr. Bleijie said.

"Annastacia Palaszczuk was around the Cabinet table when Anna Bligh's Labor government merged three generators to two, which reduced competition and made Queenslanders pay the price."
