Power price modelling flawed: SA treasurer

August 08, 2017

South Australian Treasurer Tom Koutsantonis denies the state's power is the world's most expensive.

Power price modelling declaring South Australia has the highest energy bills in the world is flawed and designed to mislead, Treasurer and Energy Minister Tom Koutsantonis says.

Carbon and Energy Markets director Bruce Mountain has released a study saying SA has surpassed Denmark's power bills, but Mr Koutsantonis says the modelling is not a like-for-like comparison.

He admits the state's prices are too high, but argues they are cheaper this year than those of Victoria and Tasmania.
