Are you feeling the impact of rising energy bills? Gas and electricity prices are expected to rise rapidly this year. Difficulties in paying energy bills are becoming more common. Increasing numbers of Victorians face hardship and are having to cut back their use of electricity and gas in order to pay other household bills. COTA Victoria,represents the voice of older people on a number of committees including the Energy and Water Ombudsman Victoria. Energy companies and government committees are wanting to hear about the difficulties faced by older people when paying energy bills or any other issues they may be having with their energy suppliers.
|COTA Victoria seeks to hear how energy and water costs are impacting upon you not only to inform our work but also to advocate on your behalf to seek fairness and representation of older people in this area.

Imagine if we could cut energy bills for vulnerable Victorians through minimum energy efficiency standards in rental housing whilst reducing pollution. COTA Victoria supports the One Million Homes Alliance lead by Environment Victoria. This campaign encourages investment in energy efficiency and aims to save money for those that can least afford it. Government will also benefit through the payment reduction in utility concessions. This simple achievable measure also provides a legacy for future generations.
