Isabelle Delmotte, Suffolk Park

We got our Origin electricity bill yesterday. A politicised bill declaring that the NSW Liberal government, dubiously, estimates that our bill increase is the result of the federal Labor government carbon tax.

According to EWON (Energy & Water Ombudsman NSW) all suppliers have to add the same quote on bills: ‘NSW government estimates that the federal carbon tax and green energy schemes add about $316 a year to the typical 7MWh household bill’.

It is clear that electricity consumers in NSW are contributing to finance the Liberal campaign for the next federal elections. I resent my bill being politicised in such a blatant way and do not wish to financially contribute to any political campaigns without my consent. If you have similar concerns please contact your federal representative.
