Solar panels and home battery systems may be the best way for South Australians to avoid record breaking electricity price hikes as reported by 9News.

These claims are made by Carbon and Energy Markets director Bruce Mountain, who is challenged by Treasurer Tom Koutsantonis.

Koutsantonis says:

  • The Australian government is finding ways to make power providers move their customers to more affordable contracts.
