The Western Australian Government last week approved an increase of 23 per cent in residential natural gas tariffs. Alinta’s customers will start paying the higher prices from tomorrow, July 1.
Alinta said the price rise would increase typical household bills by about $1.70 a week. The primary reason for the price increase is to cover additional infrastrucutre costs following last year’s gas pipeline explosion at Varanus Island, which reduced WA’s domestic gas supply by almost one third.
