Low energy users in Queensland hit with tariffs of 72c/kWh

Despite gushing press release announcing reduced bills picked up uncritically by local media, real horror is the impact on low energy users, single person households, pensioners and solar and energy efficient households in particular. We thought at the time that impact translated into an effective rate of more than 40c/kWh for those low energy users. We were wrong. For energy hogs, on the other hand, significant cuts. A household guzzling 10MWh a year, presumably with air con and pool pumps, are paying an effective rate of just 29c/kWh.
