Buying into the Carbon Tax Scam Proving to be Costly
Six weeks into the carbon tax regime, price hikes are starting to hit hip pockets as power bills drop into letterboxes.
Queensland Chamber of Commerce and Industry president David Goodwin said the “weird distortions’’ were becoming apparent.
“We are finding that ordinary supermarkets like the local IGA may be up for up to $15,000 on the carbon tax alone if they have to re-gas their giant refrigeration system,’’ Mr Goodwin said. “Somehow these guys are going to have find ways to cover these extra costs.’‘
The Anglican Church Grammar School (Churchie) faces a 30 per cent increase in electricity for the month of July, well above the 9 per cent increase predicted by the Federal Government.
Headmaster Jonathan Hensman said Churchie had struggled to become energy-efficient, employing everything from external louvres to power factor connection mechanisms to stop power leakage. Now he estimates the school will have to find an extra $1400 a week to meet the cost of the carbon tax.
“Given what we have done it’s a bit disappointing,’’ he said.
