Higher temps equal higher bills reminds SA ombudsman

South Australians should be prepared to pay higher electricity bills as a consequence of the record heat wave recently sweeping the state, according to Energy Industry Ombudsman Sandy Canale. Canale says many householders would already have forgotten about their extended use of air conditioners and in some cases swimming pool pumps. “Some bills are going to be higher than usual this quarter because of the heat wave,” he warns.
