The Annual SACOSS Briefing to the Minister for Energy 2020 discusses historical and current issues related to wholesale costs on the National Electricity Market (NEM), as these are a significant contribution to electricity prices in SA. Between 2017 and 2019 the majority of tariff increases in SA were attributed to wholesale electricity costs. This briefing also discusses some of the changes and impacts COVID-19 has had for energy demand and affordability. Information on the impacts of COVID was sourced from research from SACOSS, energy consumer advocates within South Australia and nationally through the National Consumer Roundtable on Energy.
