Why are Australian Electricity bills going up? Conservatives blame renewables while the federal government blames everyone else as reported by Finder.

 

There are 4 components that make up the electricity bill and each of them has contributed to the price hike:

  1. The cost of transporting electricity
  2. The cost of billing the customer
  3. The cost of generating electricity
