Almost half (40%) of renters experience energy hardship, according to new research from the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI).The research found that renters with low income, existing health issues and most concerningly, living in poor conditions, were the most vulnerable and more likely to experience financial hardship with their energy expenses. However, Dr Lyrian Daniel from the University of Adelaide believes that as energy hardship can have many faces, it’s difficult to determine the most effective way to help renters. “One of the big problems is that there is no agreed definition of how the community measures energy hardship,” he said. “It is critical that we’re able to capture and then monitor the different factors that lead people into energy hardship overtime so that effective policy responses that catch people before they experience deep and long-term disadvantage can be developed.” The quality of dwellings is said to be a major concern for renters trying to reduce energy costs, as 18% of public renters and 14% of private renters were unable to stay warm during winter. Tenants also felt limited by the options they have to improve the heating efficiency of their apartment, as many landlords didn’t value making energy efficient upgrades to their investment properties. “One strategy we propose is that landlords could be ‘incentivised’ to improve their houses’ energy efficiency and performance over time” Daniel said. “This could be done through landlords being able to claim tax rebates or other financial assistance so that appliances, such as old, inefficient hot-water services, could be upgraded to more energy efficient models instead of replaced with ‘like-for-like.”

Covid-19 has seen many Aussie households experience financial stress like never before, but with the help of a new innovative platform many are getting the support they need. It’s called Deferit, a bill payment platform that helps people pay their bills on time and avoid any late payment fees or stress. Aussies who are struggling to pay their energy bills on time can sign up to the platform, upload their bill and Deferit will pay the bill immediately on the customer’s behalf. The customer will then have to pay the cost back in four equal installments. Deferit works just like Netflix, where users are only charged a monthly fee of $5.99 when they use the service. There’s no interest or any other fees charged during the process and, according to Deferit, there is no comparable product on the Australian market.
Whether it’s to save on expenses or to have some company, having a roommate is one of the most common ways to live across the country. But sometimes different routines and habits can clash, even when it comes to energy consumption or conservation. According to new research by Origin Energy, 63% of Aussies who live in shared accommodation believe they could be doing more to reduce their energy consumption. Aussies living with their partner were reportedly more mindful of their energy use, with 84% noting cost as their main motivator for wanting to cut down on their energy use. However, despite the good intentions, 29% felt that their housemates aren’t good at conserving their energy use and are using it excessively. “Having a roommate can teach us how to have difficult conversations, from splitting bills to sharing space. So if you’re looking to save on your energy bill and feel as though your roommate could be doing better with their usage, it might be time to sit down and have an honest chat,” said Mozo Director, Kirsty Lamont. “Getting on the same page could involve brainstorming areas where you can cut back, like the laundry or heating.”
Yesterday, the Queensland government announced it would be introducing a $50 electricity bill credit for households, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The $50 credit will be added onto a customer’s next electricity bill and is expected to reach two million Queensland homeowners, tenants and customers who receive an electricity bill from their landlord. Queensland Energy Minister, Dr Anthony Lynham has also confirmed that another $50 credit will be distributed in 2021.According to Lyhnam, the government’s ability to provide these credits is a result of the dividends from publicly-owned power assets. “Queensland has the energy trifecta: lowest average prices on the eastern seaboard, reliable supply and a planned transition to a renewable future,” he said.“Unlike other states, the dividends from our publicly-owned companies flow not to multinational shareholders overseas, but to Queensland families across the state.”This power bill relief package is the second to come out due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Earlier this year, the QLD government announced it would be releasing a $300 million relief package, providing utility bill credits of up to $200 to households.
As we know, the COVID-19 lockdown began in early March, which saw many Aussies having to adjust to work life from the comfort of their couch or unfortunately, experience financial hardship for the very first time.
As Aussies across the country ease themselves back into work following the Christmas break, the Victorian government has been well ahead of the game, announcing its decision for the Victorian Default Offer (VDO).
While the winter chill is certain to send shivers up the spines of many Aussies, the dreaded July 1 energy price update may have a similar effect.
