GreyPower Electricity Campaign
At 2 pm today (Wednesday 3 April) GreyPower is launching a “Prices must fall campaign” at the rooms of Rural Women NZ located at level 8 Willbank House 57 Willis Street Wellington.
We are told that there is an electricity surplus and that wholesale prices are dropping, yet retail prices continue to rise why?
The Electricity Authority have been running a campaign to get consumers to check that they are getting the best deal from their retailer, this is part of their strategy to promote competition to control prices, but is it working?
Rio Tinto are talking about closing down the smelter at Bluff, this would leave Meridian with a great surplus of generation to dispose of, yet retail electricity prices continue to rise.
Today Grey Power is saying enough is enough and are launching their own campaign.
