Switched on Seniors

Peer Educators shining the light on electricity market changes


A FREE peer education information session for seniors’ clubs and groups

The laws around electricity pricing have changed. Electricity retailers in Southeast Queensland can now decide how much to charge customers for their electricity. This could bring changes to the way electricity is charged on your existing contract however, this competitive pricing also brings new opportunities for you to shop around to find a better electricity deal.

Don’t know where to start? To help, COTA Queensland Peer Educators are providing free, interactive information sessions to seniors’ groups and organisations. During a one hour sessions, you will learn:

  • to better understand your bills
  • how to shop around for a better deal
  • where to look for potential savings and how to avoid pitfalls
  • how to reduce your electricity usage and save money on your electricity bills.

You will ultimately be equipped with the knowledge and skills to become active consumers who can shop around for the best electricity deal for you. You will also receive specifically developed resources to assist you when comparing offers.

Sessions will be offered in Southeast Queensland until 31 May 2017. Sessions are limited so book early to secure a session for your group.

If you do not belong to an existing seniors group or organisation, why not come along to one of our free public sessions in Carina, Bribie Island, Underwood or Peregian Beach.

** These information sessions are directly relevant for seniors who receive an electricity bill from an electricity retailer, but not those who receive one from a body corporate, property owner or similar arrangement.*

Sessions will cease to be delivered as of 31 May 2017.  For more information or to book your session prior to 31 May 2017  please phone 1300 738 348.

This project is supported by the Queensland Government.
