Calling on the Electricity Authority to protect families struggling with power prices
Electricity is an essential service, necessary for health and wellbeing. Most of us rely on it to stay warm, cook dinner, do our homework and keep the lights on. But lack of action from the regulator - the Electricity Authority, who sets the rules for electricity retailers - is causing unfair hardship.
Sign this petition to call on the Electricity Authority to:
1: Ban disconnection and reconnection fees in case of unpaid bills
2: Make prepay no more expensive than a retailer’s cheapest plan, and publish prepay disconnection data.
3: Make the Consumer Care Guidelines mandatory.
These are changes that will benefit lowest-income households the most.
