Shocking electric bills

Victorians would have welcomed some of that fabled global warming over winter:
As the mercury plunged to an average winter temperature of 9.5 degrees and the city experienced its wettest winter in eight years, energy use soared.

Many households have experienced winter bill increases far in excess of the annual median electricity price rise in Victoria of 10-11 per cent.
But worse – much worse – lies ahead:
The current conservative forecast is for a 100 per cent (electricity price) increase over the next five years.

And that is a conservative estimate.
Maybe it's time to start stockpiling candles.

Soon, we will all be chopping down trees in national parks to burn for warmth. I wonder what the eco-nazis will do then?
